1301.00000 – REPRESENTATION ISSUES; CONTRACT BAR
1301.03000 – Midterm Modification; Premature Extension; Short Term Extension

Premature extension doctrine provides that a contract extension which alters the window period established by the original contract is not a valid bar to the filing of a decertification petition; p. 7. Short-term extension will be a valid bar to a decertification petition so long as the parties are actively engaged in good-faith negotiations and absent other evidence of a bad-faith attempt to manipulate the window period; pp. 8-9. (Overruled in Apple Valley USD (1990) PERB Order No. Ad-209.)
