    The Employment Relations Board (ERB) resolves disputes concerning labor relations for an estimated 3,000 different employers and 250,000 employees in public and private sector under its jurisdiction. The Board administers the collective bargaining law that covers public employees of the State of Oregon and its cities, counties, school districts, and other local governments; hears and decides appeals from state employees concerning personnel actions; and administers the collective bargaining law that regulates private employers who are not covered by the National Labor Relations Act.

2017 Legislative Concepts
The Board has submitted three legislative concepts affecting several statutes in ORS ch 240 and ch 243. In addition, we have a placeholder proposal to address when bargaining starts for parties who use an interest-based process.  If we continue with the placeholder proposal, that concept will be posted in late June. Any questions can be directed to Board Chair Kathryn Logan. To view the draft language of the concepts click here, LC 11500-01, LC 11500-02LC 11500-03, and LC 11500-04.
