The Board did not find good cause to excuse a late-filed appeal of the dismissal of the unfair practice charge where charging party was aware of the deadline, failed to explain how an illness prevented him from making a conscientious effort to timely file the appeal, and failed to timely request an extension of time under PERB Regulation 32132.
