Public Employment Relations Board v. Bellflower Unified School DistrictAnnotate this Case
CSEA filed two unfair practice charges against the District in 2010 and 2013 under the Education Employment Relations Act (EERA). The Board then issued two decisions and orders requiring, among other things, that the District post two specific notices to its employees. After the decisions and orders became final, the District refused to post the notices. The Board filed the underlying enforcement proceeding, and the trial court issued a writ of mandate instructing the District to comply.
The Court of Appeal held that substantial evidence supported the trial court's conclusion that the decisions and orders were issued pursuant to the Board's procedures. The court explained that, to the extent the District suggested procedural irregularities occurred, it failed to support the argument with citations to specific examples and thus waived any such contention. Furthermore, there was no abuse of discretion on the part of the General Counsel under California Code of Regulations, title 8, section 32980.
