1310.04000 – Decertification and Unit Modification
When the employees covered by a petition are currently represented, an employee organization unilaterally desiring to represent them must file a decertification petition pursuant to PERB Regulation 61350 et seq., or a severance petition pursuant to PERB Regulation 61400 et seq. The litany of requirements contained within those provisions—including proof of employee support, and restrictions on the timing of petitions—would be undermined if a petitioner could file a unilateral and hostile unit modification petition.
