1301.03000 – Midterm Modification; Premature Extension; Short Term Extension
Private sector law “shall apply” in deciding representation matters under the transit district acts (PERB Regulation 93080), though a transit district act takes precedence over federal law when there is a conflict. Under Crompton Company (1982) 260 NLRB 417, 418, a one-month CBA extension is not long enough to create a contract bar, because it is not long enough to create a new open window. Under Deluxe Metal Furniture Co. (1958) 121 NLRB 995, 999, fn 6, the contract bars applies only if both the contract ratification date and the contract’s effective date both precede the filing date of a petition to decertify or replace the incumbent union.
