1309.01000 – In General/Definition of Appropriate Unit
PERB rejects a formalistic approach to unit determination. The mere fact that an employee does not work a particular number of days or percentage of time does not, in and of itself, indicate that the employee does not share a community of interest with other unit members. Employees belong in bargaining unit if they have a reasonable expectation of continuing employment.
