The three-member State Employment Relations Board was created by Ohio’s Public Employees’ Collective Bargaining Act of 1983, which created Chapter 4117 of the Ohio Revised Code. Acting as a neutral, the quasi-judicial board determines appropriate bargaining units, conducts representation elections, certifies exclusive bargaining representatives, monitors and enforces statutory dispute procedures, adjudicates unfair labor practice charges, and determines unauthorized strikes. Board appointments are made by the governor with the advice and consent of the senate. A board member’s term is six years.
