1309.03000 – Community of Interest
The MMBA does not specify the criteria to be used when making unit determinations in cases of a dispute. In determining whether a community of interest exists among employees within a unit, both the courts and the Board analyze a variety of factors, including job function and duties, wages, method of compensation, hours, employment benefits, supervision, qualifications, training and skills, contact/interchange with other employees, integration of work functions, and common goals.
