1308.02000 – Severance (PUC Transit District Units)

The first craft severance factor in transit district cases traditionally examines whether the proposed unit consists of “a distinct and homogenous group” of skilled journeymen craftsmen. Though they are not a distinct and homogenous group, given the preference in California’s public sector for multi-craft bargaining units, the inclusion of three distinct craft groups in a proposed unit does not bar severance.
