(A) At any time subsequent to the filing of a petition for representation or decertification election, the parties may enter into and file with the board a consent election agreement. The agreement shall include a waiver of hearing, a description of the unit, the proposed date(s), time(s), and place(s) of the election, and the date to be used to determine which employees shall be eligible to vote. The eligibility date shall, unless otherwise directed by the board or agreed to by the parties, be the payroll period ending just prior to the date on which the board approves the consent election agreement.
(B) If the board approves the consent election agreement, the board shall conduct an election. A consent election shall be conducted in the same manner as an election directed as a result of a hearing, and all questions arising in connection with the conduct or results of a consent election shall be processed in accordance with procedures set forth in Chapter 4117-5 of the Administrative Code.
(C) Dates, times, and places of the election will be determined by the board with due consideration given to the proposals of the parties.
