Decertification of a union sought by dissatisfied unit member

Decertification of a union sought by dissatisfied unit member
Matter of Seneca Fall Support Staff Association, 33 PERB 3028.

A number of unit members dissatisfied with the representation provided by the existing collective bargaining agent, CSEA, formed the Seneca Falls Support Staff Organization [SFSSO].

SFSSO ultimately filed a petition seeking (1) decertification of CSEA as the collective bargaining agent for the support staff and (2) certification as the collective bargaining agent for support staff then represented by CSEA.

Finding that the CFC was acting independently and not as a shell organization for another union seeking representation rights as CSEA contended, PERB affirmed the ruling by its administrative law judge that a representation election be scheduled.
