Last fall, the Santa Cruz Faculty Association filed a charge with the Public Employee Relations Board (PERB) arguing that the UC Santa Cruz administration violated labor law by refusing to bargain with the SCFA, the legal bargaining representative of UCSC senate faculty, over the implementation of the furloughs for senate faculty. We’ve recently won a partial victory! PERB issued a complaint alleging that the UC did possibly violate the law by refusing to bargain in good faith. The process is not finished, however. The UC administration must respond to the complaint. Stay tuned for more information!
