1309.01000 – In General/Definition of Appropriate Unit
Under EERA since neither party proposed a Sweetwater unit, the standard is whether the proposed unit is an appropriate unit. New unit rejected and existing unit modified where the unit proposed shares a community of interest with the existing unit in areas of education, experience, training, working conditions, overlapping job functions, lines of supervision, hours of work, and more factors. The petitioned-for classifications do not share a separate and distinct community of interest that would warrant establishment of a separate unit.
