1310.01000 – In General
Retired annuitants are not automatically placed in bargaining units containing full-time employees performing similar tasks. Rather, retired annuitants will be placed in such units if they are included in a unit determination or modification petition and if, following a full unit hearing, the Board determines they are appropriately placed in that unit. PERB is vested with the exclusive authority to determine appropriate bargaining units for State employees. Thus, to the extent the actions of the State Controller’s Office conflict, or are otherwise inconsistent, with PERB’s unit determinations, PERB’s determinations control.
