Petition filed by employer.

(1) Where an employer has been presented with one or more demands for recognition of an exclusive bargaining representative of previously unrepresented employees, it may obtain a determination of the question concerning representation by filing a petition under WAC 391-25-070. Instead of a showing of interest under WAC 391-25-110, the employer shall attach copies of any written demand(s) for recognition or other correspondence pertaining to the claimed question concerning representation.
(2) Where an employer disputes the majority status of the incumbent exclusive bargaining representative of its employees, it shall obtain a determination of the question concerning representation by filing a petition under WAC 391-25-070.
(a) Instead of a showing of interest under WAC 391-25-110, the employer shall attach affidavits and other documentation as may be available to it to demonstrate the existence of a good faith belief that a majority of its employees in an existing bargaining unit no longer desire to be represented by their incumbent exclusive bargaining representative.
(b) Unsolicited signature documents provided to the employer by employees and filed by the employer in support of a petition under this subsection must be in a form which would qualify under WAC 391-25-110 if filed by the employees directly with the commission, and shall be treated as confidential under WAC 391-25-110.
(3) A petition under this section shall be filed at the commission's Olympia office, as required by WAC 391-08-120(1). The employer shall serve a copy of the petition (excluding any showing of interest) on each employee organization named in the petition as having an interest in the proceedings, as required by WAC 391-08-120 (3) and (4).
