A very important lawsuit is scheduled for Friday, June 4th. TEA filed this lawsuit against PERC to force them to abide by their written administrative procedures and WAC law. TEA filed the lawsuit in Thurston County because that is where PERC is located and because the Thurston County judges have direct experience with PERC administrative issues. TEA attorney, Jim Cline, has prepared and submitted a court brief. Please contact a TEA officer for a copy. It tells a very compelling story.
WHY WE’RE GOING TO COURT ON JUNE 4th
WE’RE SUING FOR OUR RIGHTS!
Throughout this time the PERC has ignored the well defined legal process for reviewing our petitions and Unfair Labor Practice Complaints. The PERC has even issued decisions without holding hearings.
WE’RE SUING FOR YOUR RIGHTS!
The Technical Employees Association (TEA) is an organization conceived from the ideals and determination of basic worker rights to representation. We have been working toward full recognition since 1995. Despite a hard-fought battle by the County and Local 17, TEA is still a viable organization after 3 1/2 years. We have money in the bank, we have a good attorney, and we have a just cause.
We know that we will prevail.
WE’RE SUING BECAUSE IT IS THE RIGHT THING TO DO!
Please join us at the trial. Carpools are being organized. Talk with a TEA officer, Board member and co-worker. We are all in this together.
