For purposes of triggering a request for factfinding under MMBA section 3505.4 and PERB Regulation 32802, a letter stating that the respondent “has fulfilled its obligation under the MMBA . . . by meeting and conferring on May 8, 2017 to discuss and possibly reach agreement regarding the grievance board appointments,” was sufficient written notice of a declaration of impasse.

Neither the Office of the General Counsel, nor the Board on appeal, is required to sift through documents provided by the exclusive representative in order to find a declaration of impasse. When presented with a dispute about whether there has been written notice of a declaration of impasse, the Office of the General Counsel may, as part of its investigation, require the requesting party to provide the written notice.
