202.01000 – In General; Statutory Definition
To qualify as an employee organization under EERA section 3540.1(d), a group need not represent employees on negotiable matters. It need only represent employees in their "relations" with the public school employer, notwithstanding that it never represents employees in the bargaining process or grievances; Groups to which management delegates actual decision-making authority are not "employee organizations" under the Act.
