JUSTICE WRIGHT delivered the opinion of the court:
Petitioner City of Washington (City) seeks review of a final order of the State Panel of
respondent Illinois Labor Relations Board (Board), in which the Board determined that division
supervisors of the City’s public services department were included in a bargaining unit
represented by respondent Laborers International Union of North America, Local 231 (Union).
We affirm the Board’s order.
On April 13, 2006, the Board issued a certification of representative, granting in part a
majority interest petition brought by the Union to include nonprofessional employees of the
City’s public services department in a bargaining unit represented exclusively by the Union. In
