104.01000 – Authority of Board In General; Validity and Application of Regulations (See also 102.01)
Under the MMBA, PERB regulations apply only when the agency has no local rule governing a particular representation matter. Because a county had local rules governing unit modification, PERB Regulation 61450(e)(1), requiring a showing of majority support among unrepresented employees to be added to an existing bargaining unit when the addition would increase unit size by more than ten percent, did not apply despite the local rules’ silence on majority support.
