THE SWEET SMILE OF VICTORY — A PEF leadership victory meeting reads, with obvious delight, the unanimous decision of the Public Employment Relations board certifying PEF as the collective bargaining agent for 45,000 PS&T unit members. The same decision completely upheld the hearing officer’s decision in throwing out all of CSEA’s allegations and in validating PEF’s smashing election victory in April 1978. — Communicator archive, Volume 42, No. 8 October, 1978.
