1. Furlough ULP Ruling by PERC

As reported last month, the full PERC Commission has affirmed the ruling by Hearings Examiner Terry Wilson that King County committed an Unfair Labor Practice ULP by failing to bargain with TEA over the unilateral implementation of the 2009 furloughs.

While WW Staff settled the effects of the Furlough as part of their recent contract negotiation and ratification, the WW Supervisors and Transit Staff are still covered by the ULP decision by the full PERC Commission.

In terms of the timeline, the original ruling by Terry Wilson directs the County to respond to TEA and PERC within 20 days on their plan to implement the ruling. Twenty days from the recent decision would be July 12th.
