Cross-check of records.

(1) Where a cross-check of records is to be conducted to determine a question concerning representation, the organization shall furnish to the agency original or legible copies of individual authorization cards or letters signed and dated by employees in the bargaining unit no more than ninety days prior to the filing of the petition. Authorization documents shall indicate that the employees authorize the named organization to represent them for the purposes of collective bargaining.
(2) The agency shall honor a valid revocation of authorization contained in an individual card or letter signed by the employee and furnished to the agency by the employee. The agency shall notify the petitioner of the existence and number of any such revocation(s) prior to the commencement of the cross-check, but shall not disclose the identities of the employees involved.
(3) The employer shall make available to the agency original or legible copies of employment records maintained as a part of its business records containing the names and signatures of the employees in the bargaining unit.
(4) Prior to the commencement of the cross-check, the organization may file and serve, as required by WAC 391-08-120, a request that the question concerning representation be determined by a representation election. Any such requests shall be honored.
(5) Where the organization files a disclaimer or a request for election after the commencement of the cross-check, the cross-check shall be terminated and the organization shall not seek to be certified in the bargaining unit for a period of at least one year.
(6) All cross-checks shall be by actual comparison of records furnished by the parties. The agency shall not disclose the names of employees giving representation authorization in favor of the organization. Upon the conclusion of the comparison of records, the agency shall furnish to the parties a tally sheet containing the number of employees in the bargaining unit, the number of employee records examined and the number of employee records counted as valid evidence of representation.
