PERB Stays Out of Internal Union Matters

Kern High Faculty Association CTA/NEA (Maaskant) (PERB Dec. No. 1885-E) (Issued February 14, 2007)

Employee brought unfair practice charge against union for declaring him ineligible to serve on union’s Representative Council because he was an agency fee payer. Board precedent provides that “matters concerning internal union affairs are generally immune from review, unless they have a substantial impact on the relationships of unit members to their employers so as to give rise to a duty of fair representation, or involve retaliations for protected activity.” Applying this doctrine to the facts, the Board affirmed the dismissal of the charge.
