The Representation Process:

  • The Investigator will issue letters to the parties explaining the process and requesting information.
  • The public employer must post the petition in a conspicuous place and certify with SERB that the petition was posted.
  • After receipt of the requested information, the Investigator will review the information submitted.
  • A teleconference with the parties will be held to discuss all issues regarding the petition.
  • The Investigator will make the appropriate recommendation to the Board.
  • The Board conducts an independent review of the information.
  • The Board will either accept the Investigator’s recommendation or make an alternative recommendation.
