1309.13000 – Supervisors
Lead custodians are supervisors because they effectively recommend the hire, promotion and discipline of employees, independently direct work and alter work assignments; pp. 8-9. Recognizing that in the public sector final decisions re: hiring, discipline, etc., are traditionally reserved to persons far removed from the employee's immediate supervision, the Board will give great weight to the ability to indirectly but effectively effectuate changes in employment status-- this is why EERA sec. 3540.1(m) speaks of authority to effectively recommend; p. 9. Board will rely upon exercise of supervisorial functions, not ratios of supervisors to (rank and file) employees, in determining who is a supervisor; p. 10.
