Helping employees maximize their potential


University of California, Riverside –

In March 2017, American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) made a request for information for employee names and status information, including but not limited to age, gender, health insurance plan choice, ethnic status and veteran status. The University objected to producing that information on privacy grounds. AFSCME filed an unfair labor practice charge with the California Public Employment Relations Board (PERB), and in a decision dated February 28, 2020, PERB found that the University had violated the Higher Education Employee Employer Relations Act (HEERA) by refusing to turn over the information and ordered the University to turn over the requested information to AFSCME. PERB also ordered the University to post the attached Notice and distribute a copy to bargaining unit employees.
