Decisions and Orders Digest for 2012

PETERSBURG POLICE ASSOCIATION vs. CITY OF PETERSBURG and PETERSBURG MUNICIPAL EMPLOYEES ASSOCIATION, Local 6132, APEA/AFT, AFL-CIO, Case No. 11-1594-RC/RD.. Decision and Order No. 297 (January 23, 2012). The petition of the Petersburg Police Association to sever the police department's Class I employees from the wall-to-wall bargaining unit represented by the Petersburg Municipal Employees Association and become their exclusive representative for collective bargaining is denied and dismissed. The employees have a longstanding community of interest with other city employees in the bargaining unit, they have been represented adequately in the bargaining unit, and unnecessary fragmenting would occur if we granted this petition.

The motion to preclude David A. Snyder from testifying at hearing is granted, and the appeal from the hearing examiner's order is affirmed.
