1309.01000 – In General/Definition of Appropriate Unit
Joint filing of a petition for unit modification pursuant to PERB Regulation 32781(c) allows on its face an inference of dissatisfaction with the status quo. Absence of evidence in the record to rebut the inference leads the Board to find adequate evidence of dissatisfaction with incumbent union's representation. Where neither unit would be inappropriate for the continuing education counselors, it is proper to consider the desire of employees in making a determination on a unit modification petition.
