Body
DEPARTMENT RECOMMENDATION
Human Resources recommending the Board of Supervisors adopt Resolution 100-2016 acknowledging the El Dorado County Probation Officer’s Association as the recognized employee organization representing employees in the Probation bargaining unit.

DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND
Board of Supervisors Resolution #10-83 provides the procedures for administration of employer-employee relations between the County and its employee organizations. This resolution is commonly referred to as the Employer Employee Relations Resolution (EERR). Procedures for the formation and recognition of new bargaining units are included in the EERR.

A petition was filed by the El Dorado County Probation Officer’s Association seeking to decertify the incumbent representative organization, Operate Engineers Local 3 in representation of employees included in the Probation Unit and a petition was filed by El Dorado County Probation Officer’s Association seeking recognition to represent employees included in the Probation Unit. The State of California Mediation and Conciliation Service has conducted an election of the employees included in the bargaining unit. The State Mediation and Conciliation Service determined that the petitioning employee organization met or exceeded the majority requirements (Attachment B). The majority requirements were that 50% plus one of the employees in the bargaining unit desired representation by the El Dorado County Probation Officer’s Association.

Given this vote, it is appropriate to recognize El Dorado County Probation Officer’s Association representing employees in the Probation unit.
