1301.03000 – Midterm Modification; Premature Extension; Short Term Extension
PERB adopts regional director's application of the NLRB's principle of premature extension of contracts. A premature extension occurs when, during the term of an existing contract, the parties execute a new contract with an expiration date later than that of the first contract. The prematurely extended contract will not act as a bar to an election.
