602.01000 – In General
Employer’s requirement that incumbent union’s non-employee organizers sign in and wear an identification badge to access non-public areas of the employer’s hospital during an election campaign had a de minimis impact on the union’s access rights. Under Claremont Police Officers Assn. v. City of Claremont, the requirement did not have a significant and adverse effect on a subject within the scope of representation and thus the employer had no duty to meet and confer before adopting and implementing the requirement. No unilateral change in access rights when the employer never imposed a requirement that organizers be escorted by a staff member nor limited the areas to which the incumbent union had access.
