Ionia County Intermediate Education Association, MEA/NEA -and- Ionia County Intermediate School District

Unfair Labor Practice Found: Respondent Violated § 10(2)(d) by Demanding to Arbitrate a Grievance Over Teacher Discipline, a Prohibited Subject of Bargaining; Grievance Arbitration Regarding a Prohibited Subject Constitutes an Effort to Enforce Provisions Made Unenforceable by § 15(3); § 15(3)(m) Does Not Affect the Constitutional Right to Due Process or Enforcement of that Right in Forums Other Than Grievance Arbitration; the Order Granting Respondent’s Request for an Extension of Time was Appropriately Issued Because Commission Rule 176a(3) Does Not Require a Party to Give a Reason for a First Extension of Time.
