Absent an appropriate defense, an employer's unilateral change in a condition of employment involving a mandatory subject of bargaining will constitute an illegal refusal to bargain and a prohibited practice under MERA, the Municipal Employees Relations Act, Connecticut General Statutes §7-470(a)(4); however, if the contract permits the employer to make the change, no violation will be found.
