bargaining unit

Primary tabs

A bargaining unit is a group of employees who have a clear and identifiable community of interests with one another. Additionally, a bargaining unit is represented by a single labor union in dealings with management such as collective bargaining.  The "appropriateness" of a bargaining unit is determined at the discretion of the Regional Director of the Board.

See e.g., Pfau v. Pub. Emp’t Relations Bd. 89 A.D.3d 1205 (2011).
