1309.01000 – In General/Definition of Appropriate Unit
Rebuttable presumption that all classroom teachers are in the same unit. Cites Peralta CCD (1977) PERB Dec. No. 77. Presumption applies to question of proper unit placement of substitute teachers, and single unit will be directed, unless disparate community of interest exists or such application would cause disruption or instability within an already established unit. Question of disruption is part of Peralta test.
