The Public Employee Relations Board has ruled that a decertification petition circulated to members of Bargaining Unit 21 is valid. SEIU Local 1000, which represents the roughly 700 education consultants and librarians in BU 21, wanted the petition invalidated. The union had claimed the petition hadn't been filed in a timely manner and that the petitioner had made false claims to woo employees to sign on.
PERB is meeting in a couple of weeks to set a date for the vote.
