Past Unfair Practice Charges News

Unfair Practice Charges

Under the California Higher Education Employer-Employee Relations Act (HEERA), the CSU cannot retaliate against you for or interfering with you in union activity, and it cannot change your terms and conditions of employment without first giving APC notice and an opportunity to bargain about the change. If the CSU does so anyway, an Unfair Practice Charge should be filed with the California Public Employment Relations Board (PERB).

All PERB decisions can be researched at the PERB Decision Page. This page provides you with more specific information about past and current Unfair Practice Charges filed by APC, as well as any decisions and settlements that resulted from these Charges.

Related information about the collective bargaining process and the filing of Unfair Practice Charges can be found on our Educational Library and Links page.
