Special provision—State civil service employees.

(1) While a notice of election is posted under WAC 391-25-430, employees in the bargaining unit or proposed bargaining unit have the right to conduct campaigning activities in the public areas or in the nonworking areas of the employer's premises, during nonworking time of the campaigner and employees being solicited, as long as they do not disrupt operations. However, if employees are permitted to discuss nonwork subjects or solicit other employees in work areas, the employer cannot discriminatorily regulate employee discussions or solicitations.
(2) Nonemployees have the right to engage in campaigning activities in the employer's public areas consistent with the reasonable use of those areas. Where there are no public areas in an employer's workplace, reasonable comparable access must be granted.
(3) Employer rules and policies may expand these rights. Employer rules and policies must be nondiscriminatory.
