1309.01000 – In General/Definition of Appropriate Unit
Though among classified employees three units are presumptively appropriate (paraprofessional, office-technical and business services, and operations-support), other configurations may be appropriate when supported by sufficient evidence; pp. 5-6. ALJ's decision that wall- to-wall unit appropriate reversed because, contrary to ALJ's finding, no evidence that interaction of employees and threat of efficient operations sufficient to overcome presumption; however, since instructional and campus aides perform mostly clerical-type duties, presumption in favor of separate paraprofessional unit overcome; pp. 6-8.
