1300.04000 – Certification Bar
Union alleged that District violated local rules by allowing unit modification election to proceed within 12 months of an unsuccessful decertification election. Board rejected union’s argument that a contract bar existed; instead, Board found that local rule provided a 12-month bar only from the date of formal recognition. However, Board found that separate local rule provided a 12-month bar following the date of any recognition election. Thus, Board reversed dismissal and remanded case for issuance of complaint.
