1308.01000 – In General
Severance petition denied where association sought to create a new bargaining unit by severing three police department classifications from the larger support services unit. Under Sweetwater Union High School District (1976) EERB Decision No. 4 (Sweetwater), there are three presumptively appropriate bargaining units for classified employees of school districts, including inter alia an operations-support services unit. Petitioner did not meet its burden of showing that the proposed campus police officers unit is more appropriate than the presumptively appropriate Sweetwater support services unit.
