1306.01000 – In General; Requirements
Representation petitions may be filed by residual groups of unrepresented employees who were excluded from existing units via voluntary recognitions or consent election agreements, but would likely have been included in the unit had the issue been before the Board at that time. These types of petitions are filed because there is no mechanism for being added to the existing unit if the exclusive representative of that unit chooses not to file a unit modification petition. There is no established mechanism for forcing upon an existing unit an additional group of employees the unit does not want.
