Annually, the bargaining unit may be polled in accordance with state law to certify or recertify union representation. The District Administrator will be notified sixty(60) calendar days prior to a certification vote or as per state statute. The District Administrator will be notified within seven (7) calendar days after the certification vote of the result. Extensions to this time limit may be granted by the Board. The bargaining unit may use the school for voting but not during the teacher workday. Should a union representative be selected, the District will only negotiate the provisions allowed by state law. Discussions with bargaining unit members and the Board or its designees on non-salary issues are not considered negotiations.
