Collective bargaining defined

For the purposes of this chapter, collective bargaining is the performance of the mutual obligation of the employer and the representative of the employees to meet at reasonable times and confer in good faith with respect to wages, hours and other terms and conditions of employment, or the negotiation of an agreement, or any question arising thereunder, and the execution of a written contract incorporating any agreement reached if requested by either party. However, this obligation does not compel either party to agree to a proposal or require the making of a concession. [Formerly 662.515]

Notes of Decisions

In considering an ac­tion by a union member against a union for breach of duty of fair representa­tion, the state courts must apply federal substantive law and are bound by decisions of federal courts. Wheeler v. Intl. Woodworkers of Am., 274 Or 373, 547 P2d 106 (1976)
