The union that represents Amador County employees the SEIU filed Unfair Labor Practice (ULP) charges against the county on Monday, charging that the Board of Supervisors took an illegal vote to recognize a union decertification while in the middle of contract bargaining with the union. According to the Unfair Labor Practice filing, supervisors violated the Meyers-Milias-Brown Act by approving an ordinance with a "decertification bar that violates the Union's right to represent" county workers. According to the union, "The law clearly spells out a specific window of time -- 90 days before a contract expires -- during which a decertification can be filed and recognized. But the contract doesn't expire until the middle of next year," said Local 1021 representative Mike Fouch. "Adding insult to injury, we're in the middle of bargaining. They come sit with us at the bargaining table then vote to decertify us once they leave the table. How is that anything but bad faith bargaining?" Fouch said.
