1308.00000 – REPRESENTATION ISSUES; SEVERANCE
1308.01000 – In General

State information technology employees do not share a community of interest separate and distinct from the rest of existing State Bargaining Unit 1, and that the history of representation requires severance of these employees in a separate bargaining unit. Petitioner has not rebutted presumption that the existing unit is more appropriate than the proposed unit. Petitioner also failed to establish that a conflict of interest exists between the interests of information technology employees and non-information technology employees that precludes it from effectively representing both groups.
