ORS 660.155
State joint committees

  • rules


State joint apprenticeship committees may be formed in each apprenticeable occupation for the purpose of promoting and coordinating the apprenticeship goals of that occupation and of developing statewide standards and related instructional material for a course of study in that occupation. If only one joint committee exists for a particular occupation, that local joint committee has the same duties and powers as a state joint committee formed pursuant to this section. This subsection does not apply to training programs.


State joint committees shall be composed of one member representing training agents and one member representing employees from each local joint committee for that occupation. Training agent members of a local joint committee shall choose the training agent representative to the state joint committee, and employee members shall choose the employee representative. The training agent and employee members of trade committees shall be members of the state joint committee for their respective occupations, but shall be counted in determining a quorum for the state joint committee only if present. An alternate member for each principal member from a local joint committee shall also be selected in the same manner as the principal members are selected. Each alternate member has full authority to exercise the powers of the principal member for whom the alternate was selected when that principal member is unable to perform as a committee member.


Each state joint committee shall elect a chairperson and a vice chairperson, one of whom shall represent training agents, the other of whom shall represent employees. The committee may also elect such other officers as it determines appropriate. All officers elected pursuant to this subsection shall serve such terms and have such duties and powers as the committee determines appropriate for the performance of their functions.


Meetings may be called by the chairperson or at the request of the majority of the members of the committee. Each state joint committee may also formulate such rules as it deems necessary for the time, place and orderly conduct of its meetings. Each committee shall transmit to the State Apprenticeship and Training Council a written record of each such meeting.
