Oregon Employment Relations Board (ERB) submitted its final findings and order allowing the Battalion Chiefs to organize under IAFF Local 1431. This was a unanimous decision from the ERB. The City filed an appeal to the earlier award submitted by the Administrative Law Judge on July 31, 2014 allowing the Battalion Chiefs the ability to organize. The City now has a 60-day timeline to appeal the final order to the Court of Appeals.
The ERB has finalized the card check and certified IAFF Local 1431 is the exclusive representative for the Battalion Chiefs.
