Decision Date: December 16, 1976
Decision Type: PERB Decision
Perc Vol: 1
Perc Index: 21
1309.01000 – In General/Definition of Appropriate Unit
Sweetwater units for classified employees found appropriate. Existence of merit system in District does not mandate establishment of a comprehensive classified employee unit.
1309.05000 – Established Practices
Little weight given to establish practice under Winton Act where no evidence of conditions on the employee organizations under Winton.
1309.06000 – Extent of Organization
Raw number of members of an employee organization in a proposed unit is not sufficient evidence for this criterion.
200.02000 – Managerial and Confidential
Employer should be allowed a nucleus of individuals to assist in employer-employee relations and employer's right to undivided loyalty outweighs denial of representation rights for these individuals. An employee will be confidential even though the information handled by the employee may relate to negotiations for bargaining units other than the one which would include the employee.
