Administrative History

The Representation and Improper Practice Unit of the Public Employment Relations Board reviews petitions from public employee organizations and employers concerning the creation of new negotiating units and recognition of employee bargaining agents, approves the transfer of members between existing units, and designates management/confidential positions. The unit issues decisions on improper labor practice charges and declaratory rulings clarifying whether certain matters are subject to collective negotiations. The unit also conducts hearings to determine if work stoppages are illegal strikes.
