Decision 2878S – Service Employees International Union Local 1000 (Brown)
Decision Date: October 23, 2023
Decision Type: PERB Decision (Non-Precedential)
Description: Charging Party Richard Louis Brown alleged that Respondent Service Employees International Union Local 1000 (Local 1000) breached its duty of fair representation when it removed him from office, in violation of the Ralph C. Dills Act. Brown claimed Local 1000’s conduct interfered with his right to participate in Local 1000 activities and negatively impacted his ability to communicate with his employer, the State of California. The Office of the General Counsel (OGC) subsequently dismissed the charge, as amended, for failure to state a prima facie case of any unfair practice. On appeal, Brown restated the basis for his charge and claimed PERB allowed Local 1000 to violate its internal procedures as well as the California Corporations Code.
Disposition: In a non-precedential decision, the Board affirmed OGC’s dismissal of the charge.
