How did the current bargaining units get recognized?

The 2019 Nevada legislature passed Senate Bill 135, which authorizes collective bargaining for certain state employees, and Governor Sisolak signed the bill into law on June 12.

If no labor organization is designated as the exclusive representative of a bargaining unit and a labor organization files with the Board a list of its membership or other evidence showing that the labor organization has been authorized to serve as a representative by more than 50 percent of the employees within the bargaining unit, the Board shall designate the labor organization as the exclusive representative of the bargaining unit without ordering an election.
