(9) A statement of the reasons for the modification(s).
(e)(1) If the petition requests the addition of classifications or positions to an established unit, and the proposed addition would increase the size of the established unit by ten percent or more, the Board shall require proof of majority support of persons employed in the classifications or positions to be added.
(2) If the petition requests the addition of classifications or positions to an established unit and the classifications or positions are also included in a proposed appropriate unit in a pending request for recognition or petition for certification, the Board shall require proof of at least thirty percent support of persons employed in the classifications or positions to be added.
