Transfer of exclusive bargaining unit work to another bargaining unit

Transfer of exclusive bargaining unit work to another bargaining unit
Selected Rulings posted by PERB  – Matter of the City of New Rochelle, Decision U-26722

The Board affirmed a decision of an ALJ, concluding that the employer violated §209-a.1(d) of the Public Employees’ Fair Employment Act when it unilaterally transferred exclusive bargaining unit work to employees in another bargaining unit. In reaching its decision, the Board rejected the argument that a stipulation resolving a prior improper charge deprived the agency of jurisdiction to decide the present charge.

The Board affirmed the ALJ’s conclusion that the settlement agreement did not grant PBA unit members the right to exclusively perform at issue, but made them eligible for such work and set forth the terms and conditions applicable to perform the work. The Board also rejected a duty satisfaction defense premised upon the terms of the management rights clause in the parties’ agreement
