Oregon's Scope of Bargaining: From Schools to Public Safety. LERC Monograph Series, Issue No. 6.
Whalen, Kathryn; Smith, Les
This document reviews early "scope" litigation between Oregon teachers and school districts that set the underpinnings for the more recent decisions by the Employment Relations Board (ERB). These early cases worked in a dialectic fashion to bring Oregon scope of bargaining to the point it is today. As a result of the evolutionary process, the scope issues have declined in importance for employees and employers who have the statutory right to strike. The reasons that public safety issues are different for employers and their represented personnel are addressed. Finally, recent cases by the board as well as a labor and management view of the current state of the scope of bargaining obligation are examined. A table which sets forth a complete listing and brief descriptions of the scope cases which have come before the ERB is appended. (SI)
