1307.01000 – In General/Definition
When an employee organization affiliates with or disaffiliates from another organization, a question concerning representation exists unless there is “substantial continuity” of representation and identity between the pre- and post-(dis)affiliated union. Because petitioner employee organization failed to establish substantial continuity with pre-disaffiliation local, question concerning representation existed that could only be resolved through local agency’s decertification procedures.
