602.01000 – In General
Memorandum of understanding was silent regarding union’s right to access employees in the drivers’ assembly room. The parties’ past practice was to allow union officers to meet individually with drivers about union matters in the assembly room without obtaining prior permission. The employer’s rule requiring the union to obtain prior permission to access employees in the assembly room altered the parties’ past practice and thus its implementation of the rule without providing the union with an opportunity to meet and confer over the change constituted an unlawful unilateral change.
