(2) The director or designee shall administer all elections and be responsible for the processing and adjudication of all disputes that arise as a consequence of elections.

(3) Upon being notified by the director or designee that a valid petition for an election has been received, the affected appointing authority shall submit to the director or designee and the petitioning party and/or exclusive representative a list of all employees included in the bargaining unit as of the preceding payroll period. This list shall contain the employees' names, job classifications, work locations, and home mailing addresses. For purposes of an election, the director or designee shall also provide such listing to an affected employee organization which has submitted proof that it represents at least ten percent of the employees in the bargaining unit and/or to a group of affected employees who have submitted a written request signed by at least ten percent of the employees in the unit.

(4) Upon receipt of a valid petition for an election, the director or designee shall conduct a preelection conference which shall include representatives of the appointing authority, and representatives of the employee organization and/or petitioning party. At the preelection conference, determinations will be made on such matters as method of balloting, date(s) of election, absentee voting, eligibility of voters, locations, personnel at each election site, campaign activities, and any other matter that should be resolved concerning that election. Following, the preelection conference, the director or designee will establish rules, regulations and procedures for holding the election.

(5) At least ten days prior to the scheduled date, the director or designee will distribute a notice of election for posting in the work areas of affected employees. Such notice will contain information regarding the date(s), time(s) and location(s) of balloting, the rules, regulations and procedures established for the election, and a sample ballot.

(6) To the extent feasible, as determined by the director or designee, on-site voting shall take place during the employees' regular work schedules. Eligible voters shall be given ample opportunity to vote during work time while the polls are open.

(7) An employee who cannot appear at the voting site on the date of the vote, may vote by absentee ballot. A request for an absentee ballot must be submitted to the director or designee prior to the close of voting at the employee's voting site. To be counted, absentee ballots must be postmarked within five calendar days thereafter and must be received by the department of personnel within ten calendar days of the close of the polls.

(8) Employees on leave of absence without pay for the entire calendar month preceding the start of the balloting shall not be eligible to vote.

(9) Rules governing campaign activities shall be determined at the preelection conference. Employees included in the affected bargaining unit and representatives of the petitioning party and/or the affected employee organization shall have the right to conduct such activities on the employer's grounds during work hours so long as the work of the employee and the operation of the employer are not disturbed.

(10) Electioneering shall not be permitted within twenty-five feet of the posted election area during the hours of voting or at any place after the close of the polls.

(11) Each party to an election may have one observer present during on-site voting to assist the election agent in identifying eligible voters. An employee who serves as such an observer shall be released with pay from duties normally performed during his/her work hours.

(12) The department of personnel will maintain the official voter eligibility list and will provide a copy of that list to each party. The official observer for either party may bring a copy of that list to the on-site polling place(s) for his/her own use, provided such use does not interfere with the conduct of the election.

(13) Within five working days of the date of the tally of the ballots, the petitioning party, the affected employee organization, or an employee in the bargaining unit may file objections to the election. Such objections must be in writing and must be received by the director within the five working day period. The director or designee shall investigate and determine an appropriate remedy if the objection is found to be meritorious.

(14) Any violation of these rules should be immediately reported to the director or designee. Upon receiving a complaint, the director or designee will immediately investigate; and if necessary, take steps to cause the violation to stop. If it is found by the director or designee that violations of these rules or the preelection agreements have affected the outcome of the election, the director may invalidate the election, order a new election, or take other appropriate remedial action.

WAC 251-14-058   Union shop requirements.   (1) When a majority of employees within a bargaining unit determine by election to require as a condition of employment membership in the employee organization designated as the exclusive bargaining representative, all employees included in that bargaining unit are required to pay to such employee organization the regular dues of the organization, or pay a representation fee or a nonassociation fee, within thirty calendar days of the beginning of their employment within the bargaining unit or within thirty calendar days of the date of the union shop representative election, whichever is later.

(2) Membership in the employee organization is satisfied by the payment of monthly or other periodic dues, or representation fees, and does not require payment of initiation, reinstatement, or any other fees or fines, and includes full and complete membership rights.

(3) Employees who wish to exercise the right of nonassociation with an employee organization based on bona fide religious tenets, or teachings of a church or religious body of which they are a member, must present a request for nonassociation to the personnel office of the concerned institution. The appointing authority or designee and the union shop representative must be in agreement that the requests are based on such bona fide reasons. If agreement cannot be reached within a reasonable time, either party may submit the issues in dispute to the director or designee. Should the request for nonassociation be denied by the appointing authority or designee, the employee may submit the issue to the director or designee. The decision of the director regarding nonassociation shall be final.

(4) Employees who are granted the nonassociation right must pay a union shop nonassociation fee to the employee organization. Such fee is equivalent to the regular dues of the organization minus any included monthly premiums for union sponsored insurance programs.

(5) When an employee has qualified for nonassociation with an employee organization on religious grounds, the employee may designate which of the programs of the employee organization are in harmony with the employee's conscience and may then designate that the nonassociation fee shall go to such programs.

(6) The employee who qualifies for the nonassociation clause shall not be a member of the employee organization, but is entitled to the same representation rights as a member of the employee organization.

(7) Employees who object to payment for activities of the exclusive representative which are supported by regular dues and which are not related to representation of the employees in the bargaining unit may pay a representation fee in lieu of regular dues. The representation fee is to be calculated by the representative in accordance with applicable constitutional and statutory requirements. See WAC 251-01-367.

(8) A condition of employment for an employee employed in a bargaining unit where an employee organization is the exclusive union shop representative is membership in that employee organization or the regular payment of a union shop representation fee or a nonassociation fee to such organization. Failure of an employee to become a member of the employee organization or make payment of the union shop representation or nonassociation fee within thirty calendar days following the beginning of employment within the bargaining unit or thirty calendar days after the date of the union shop representative election, whichever is later, constitutes cause for dismissal per the provisions of WAC 251-11-100.

(9) The union shop representative shall inform the appointing authority, in writing, of those employees who have not complied with this section.

(10) The requirement to be a member of an employee organization or the payment of a union shop representation fee or a nonassociation fee as a condition of employment will be nullified when the employee organization which is the union shop representative is decertified per WAC ((251-14-050 or)) 251-14-054.

(11) The appointing authority or designee shall notify affected employees of existing union shop provisions prior to their hire or transfer into a bargaining unit where there is a requirement to be a member of a designated employee organization to pay a union shop representation fee or a nonassociation fee as a condition of employment.

(12) Payroll deductions for employee organization dues or union shop representation or nonassociation fees may be provided by the institution upon written authorization from the employee.

WAC 251-14-060   Contents of written agreements.   (1) Written agreements may contain provisions covering all personnel matters over which the institution/related board may lawfully exercise discretion.

(2) Written agreements shall include a grievance procedure for processing individual and group grievances within the bargaining unit and shall provide for mediation by the director or designee and for arbitration by the board. Mediation by the director or designee and arbitration by the board of a grievance dispute shall not apply in those instances where the same complaint has been filed for hearing either through the unfair labor practice or appeal procedures of the board or the personnel appeals board rules.

(3) Written agreements may contain provisions for payroll deduction of employee organization dues and/or union shop representation fees upon written authorization from the employee. Any employee may cancel his/her payroll deduction of employee organization dues by filing a written notice with the appointing authority or designee and the employee organization thirty calendar days prior to the effective date of such cancellation.

(4) Written agreements shall be for a minimum of one year in duration and shall not exceed three years. Automatic renewal or extension provisions may extend the term of a contract for only one year at a time. ((An automatic renewal or extension provision in a contract cannot act as a bar to a request for an exclusive representative decertification election per WAC 251-14-050(1).))

(5) Where there are collective bargaining agreements in effect in bargaining units which are combined per WAC ((251-14-030)) 251-14-054, the board shall determine the application of such bargaining agreements or terms thereof when there is an impasse between the exclusive representative and the institution.
