Decision 2829M – Alameda Health System
Decision Date: August 4, 2022
Decision Type: PERB Decision (Non-Precedential)
Description: An administrative law judge found that Alameda Health System (AHS) violated the MMBA by unilaterally changing its enforcement of dependent eligibility requirements for medical coverage, without first affording SEIU an adequate opportunity to meet and confer. SEIU filed exceptions to the proposed decision but then asked to withdraw its exceptions and proceed to compliance proceedings. The Board afforded AHS an opportunity to respond to this request, but it declined to do so. Nor did AHS file exceptions of its own.
Disposition: In a non-precedential decision, the Board found that there was no conflict with the MMBA’s purposes to grant SEIU’s unopposed request. In the absence of any exceptions from AHS, the Board deemed the proposed decision final. The Board granted SEIU’s request to withdraw its exceptions and remanded the matter to the Office of the General Counsel for compliance proceedings.
