California Teachers Ass'n v. Pub. Employment Relations Bd., G040106
Public Employment Relations Board erred in dismissing a complaint against a charter school for terminating teachers in violation of the Educational Employment Relations Act. The Board incorrectly found that the Act did not protect the teachers' actions in sending a letter to parents criticizing the school's financial management, and because the teachers had been fired for sending the letter, the terminations violated the Act.
