2015 ORS 663.120¹
Employer unfair labor practices

It is an unfair labor practice for an employer:

(1) To interfere with, restrain or coerce employees in the exercise of the rights guaranteed in ORS 663.110 (Employee organization, bargaining rights);

(2) To dominate or interfere with the formation or administration of any labor organization or contribute financial or other support to it. However, subject to rules published by the Employment Relations Board pursuant to ORS chapter 183, an employer may permit employees to confer with the employer during working hours without loss of time or pay;

(3) To discharge or otherwise discriminate against an employee because the employee has filed charges or given testimony under this chapter; or

(4) To refuse to bargain collectively with the employees’ exclusive representative, as defined in ORS 663.015 (Designated collective bargaining representatives to be exclusive). [1971 c.729 §7; 1975 c.83 §1]

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)
