* A request for repayment of election fees was received by the Board recently by a group that paid the fee for the election but ultimately did not have one. The Board discussed this matter and decided to take the following action: The Board shall provide refunds to any party that paid an election fee to the agency but subsequently did not participate in an election after that payment was made. This shall apply to any bargaining unit that meets both criteria for the period from June 1, 2017 to December 7, 2017. Motion was made by Van Fossen to approve that action with Cormack seconding.
