PERB rejects improper practice charge filed by a non-public employee


PERB rejects improper practice charge filed by a non-public employee
Nagy and SUNY at Buffalo, 35 PERB 3025.

PERB declined to assume jurisdiction to consider an individual's improper practice charge alleging the employer violated Sections 209-a.1(a) and 209-a.1(c) of the Civil Service Law because the individual was not a public employee within the meaning of the Taylor Law, observing that the individual was not on a state payroll and had neither paid union dues nor paid an agency fee to the collective bargaining unit's representative. Nagy and SUNY at Buffalo, 35 PERB 3025.

Similarly, in Arce and NYC Board of Education, 35 PERB 4576, a PERB Administrative Law Judge determined that SEIU Local 74 did not violate its duty of fair representation by failing to process a grievance filed by an individual independently hired by, and who worked directly for, a public school custodian because the individual was not a public employee as defined by the Taylor Law and thus he was not in the negotiating unit.
