Exemption for Certain Employees Covered by Collective Bargaining Agreements


The provisions of ORS 653.601 (Definitions for ORS 653.601 to 653.661) to 653.661 (Preemption) do not apply to an employee who meets all of the following requirements:


Whose terms and conditions of employment are covered by a collective bargaining agreement;


Who is employed through a hiring hall or similar referral system operated by the labor organization or third party; and


Whose employment-related benefits are provided by a joint multi-employer-employee trust or benefit plan.


The existence of a collective bargaining agreement alone is not sufficient to meet the requirements of this limited exemption.
