Statement about Recertification Elections
Employee organizations do not need to be recertified prior to negotiating a CBA that will commence in 2017.
Recertification elections will not be held prior to June 2017. Beginning no earlier than June 2017, the Public Employment Relations Board will hold recertification elections for employee organizations representing bargaining units with CBAs expiring in April 2018.
PERB will develop rules for recertification elections and will notify parties of any upcoming elections in which the parties may be involved.
However, within 10 days of entering into the CBA, an employer is required to submit collective the bargaining agreement to PERB so our agency can determine when a recertification election is necessary.
