Taking the Fight to PERB

After a historic first-ever strike last week, CAPS legal team now picks up the banner and continues the fight to protect your employee rights. 

Late Monday, the Public Employment Relations Board (PERB) issued a Complaint after receiving an Unfair Practice Charge from CalHR, a complaint that CAPS’ legal team believes is without merit. CalHR and the CAPS legal team will meet next week for an informal conference which will either lead to a settlement of the complaint or to the scheduling of a formal hearing. CAPS remains confident that it was legal and justified for CAPS members to exercise their fundamental right to withhold labor after PERB’s declaration of impasse. We will keep you posted on further developments.

 Your CAPS bargaining team will meet again with the PERB-assigned mediator to continue the mediation process on Tuesday, November 28.
