Decision 2908E – United Teachers Los Angeles (Lukens, et al.)


Decision Date: July 2, 2024

Decision Type: PERB Decision (Non-Precedential)

Description:  Charging Parties alleged that United Teachers Los Angeles (UTLA) violated the right to fair representation established by the Educational Employment Relations Act (EERA) when UTLA failed to follow internal union election rules during union officer elections in 2023. Charging Parties also alleged that UTLA had prohibited Charging Party Lukens from speaking about non-endorsed school board candidates during UTLA meetings. PERB’s Office of the General Counsel (OGC) dismissed the charge after determining that Charging Parties failed to establish a prima facie case and, and, in part, that the charges concerned actions taken outside the six-month statute of limitations period. Charging Parties timely appealed the dismissal.

Disposition:  After reviewing the entire record, including Charging Parties’ appeal, the Board affirmed the dismissal. The Board determined that the record supported dismissal because Charging Party failed to state a prima facie case, and because a portion of the charges were untimely.
