Special provision—State civil service employees.

(1) In addition to the cross-check of records permitted by WAC 391-25-391 and the procedures under WAC 391-25-410, where only one organization is seeking certification as the representative of unrepresented employees covered by chapters 41.06 and 41.80 RCW, the executive director may issue a direction of cross-check utilizing the procedures outlined in WAC 391-25-410 if the showing of interest submitted in support of the petition indicates that the petitioning organization has been authorized by a majority of the employees to act as their representative for the purposes of collective bargaining, provided:
The authorization cards submitted in support of a petition under this section must, at a minimum, contain the following:
(a) The employee's name typed or printed legibly, the employee's signature, and the date of the employee's signature;
(b) A statement that the employee designates the named labor organization as the employee's exclusive bargaining representative for purposes of collective bargaining;
(c) A statement that the showing of interest may be used for purposes of a cross-check election under this rule;
(d) A statement that the employee understands that the employee's signature on the card may be used to obtain certification of the named labor organization as the exclusive bargaining representative of the employee without a secret ballot election; and
(e) A statement that the employee has the right to ask the agency to revoke the employee's authorization card for purposes of cross-check of records. 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.
(2) An authorization card that fails to comply with subsection (1) of this section shall be invalid for purposes of initiating a cross-check of records under this rule.
(3) A direction of cross-check and other rulings in the proceedings up to the issuance of a tally are interim orders, and may only be appealed to the commission by objections under WAC 391-25-590 after the cross-check. An exception is made for rulings on whether the employer or employees are subject to the jurisdiction of the commission, which may be appealed under WAC 391-25-660.
