(1) The Legislative Assembly finds that:
(a) It is the policy of this state that public funds may not be used to subsidize interference with an employee’s choice to join or to be represented by a labor union.
(b) Some public employers use public funds to aid or subsidize efforts to deter union organizing.
(c) Use of public funds to deter union organizing is contrary to the purposes for which the funds were appropriated and is wasteful of scarce public resources.
(2) The purpose of ORS 243.670 (Prohibition of actions by public employer to assist, promote or deter union organizing) is to maintain the neutrality of public bodies in labor organizing by forbidding the use of public funds for unintended purposes and to conserve public resources by ensuring that public funds are used as intended. [2013 c.663 §3]
Note: 243.668 (Legislative findings) was enacted into law by the Legislative Assembly but was not added to or made a part of ORS chapter 243 or any series therein by legislative action. See Preface to Oregon Revised Statutes for further explanation.
