Public employees in Washington State have the right to be organized. PERC conducts representation elections to determine if public employees want to be represented by a union.
Unit clarifications are used to add or remove employees from an existing bargaining unit to ensure the bargaining unit continues to be appropriate after there has been a change in status.
PENDING REPRESENTATION CASES
Representation cases are listed on this web page while the opportunity for intervention remains available under WAC 391-25-170 or WAC 391-25-190.
