1308.01000 – In General
Under the Dills Act, PERB is not compelled by law to form peace officer-only units, and peace officer employees do not have the statutory right to belong to a peace officer-only unit unless and until PERB designates positions or classes of positions whose primary duties involve the enforcement of state laws. Under the Dills Act, when a petition is filed to sever a unit from a larger, presumptively appropriate unit, the burden is on the petitioner to show that the requested unit is more appropriate.
