Employment Relations Commission stops union maneuver

The Michigan Employment Relations Commission (MERC) blocked a union ploy to add Public Safety Academy teachers to an existing bargaining unit representing workers employed by a different school system.

MERC and the National Labor Relations Board frown on multiemployer bargaining units. But the commission noted that multiemployer units could exist only with all the employers’ permission.

The Michigan Education Association was organizing teachers at the academy and wanted to incorporate teachers from nearby St. Clair County Intermediate Education Association in order to win a representation election. But MERC ruled the move to be an unfair practice, and required that the union election take place among the academy faculty only.
