Decision 2872S – Service Employees International Union Local 1000 (Williams)
Decision Date: September 6, 2023
Decision Type: PERB Decision (Non-Precedential)
Description: Charging Party Youlanda Williams alleged that Respondent SEIU Local 1000 violated the Dills Act by breaching its duty of fair representation. PERB’s Office of the General Counsel (OGC) issued Williams a warning letter, which Williams twice amended. Thereafter, OGC dismissed the charge for failure to allege a prima facie case of any unfair practice. On appeal, Williams claimed her charge stated a prima facie case that SEIU breached its duty of fair representation when it refused to (1) arbitrate her grievance regarding office temperature, and (2) represent her in an informal meeting regarding the same issue.
Disposition: In a non-precedential decision, the Board affirmed OGC’s dismissal of the charge.
