Scenarios for District Phase-in of the OEBB Benefit Plans
Child solves math problems.
 
 
For application of the OEBB temporary rules on district phase-ins
 
Since the formation of the Oregon Educators Benefit Board (OEBB) under 2007 Senate Bill 426, many of the most frequently asked questions have related to the coordination of effective dates of local collective bargaining agreements (CBAs) and mandated entry into the OEBB.
 
The OEBB temporary administrative rules were developed to clarify the required phase-in related to the expiration of CBAs, as presented during legislative discussions on the bill.  (Drafting errors in SB 426 did not correctly reflect that intent, therefore technical corrections to support the intent will be made during the Legislature’s Special Session in February 2008.)  
 
The scenarios presented below provide examples of how units will come into the OEBB based on the OEBB administrative rules.
