Public Employment Relations Conference (PERC)

Co-sponsored by the Oregon Public Employers Labor Relations Association and the Oregon Labor Employment Relations Association.

Since 1979, LERC has hosted the Public Employment Relations Conference (PERC), a gathering of public sector labor relations professionals from across Oregon, including attorneys, neutrals, and representatives from both unions and management. LERC coordinates the conference in even years, and the Oregon chapter of the Labor and Employment Relations Association assumes coordinating duties during odd years.††

Attendees discuss recent developments in public sector labor law (PECBA) and labor relations in both plenary sessions and workshops.†The highlight of the conference is a review of leading labor law cases by members of the Oregon Employment Relations Board (ERB).†This unique and popular segment of PERC features discussion of decisions rendered by the ERB during the past year and allows board members, management, and union representatives to offer their perspectives on major developments in Oregonís public sector labor law.

In conjunction with the PERC the Labor Education and Research Center publishes a LERC Monograph Series, a collection of volumes providing in depth analysis of specific topics affecting Oregonís public sector workers and managers, with special emphasis on the PECBA.†Written by leading labor law professionals in Oregonís public sector, the series has become a standard reference source for labor, management and neutral practitioners.†To date there have been eighteen volumes of the Monograph.†The latest edition of the Monograph [June 2007] is:

Public Employees and Oregon’s Scope of Bargaining, by Akin Blitz and Liz Joffe
