1308.00000 – REPRESENTATION ISSUES; SEVERANCE
1308.01000 – In General

Severance petition denied where association sought to create a bargaining unit comprised of most, but not all, Campus Police Officers and Campus Reserve Police Officers. Board found a community of interest between employees proposed to be included in the new unit and those in the existing unit. The record reflects minor differences in duties and training that were not significant enough to negate a finding of community of interest. Additionally, the Board held that the proposed unit would adversely affect the efficiency of operations of the employer because it would cause the employer to negotiate the working conditions of the same job classification with two different unions.
