(1) If it is charged that a person has engaged in an unfair labor practice within the meaning of ORS 663.140 (1) to (3) or 663.150 or 663.155, the preliminary investigation of the charge shall be made forthwith and given priority over all other cases except cases of like character where it is filed or referred. If, after investigation, the Employment Relations Board or its agent has reasonable cause to believe the charge is true and that a complaint should issue, the board shall petition the Court of Appeals for appropriate injunctive relief pending the final adjudication of the board with respect to the matter.
(2) On the filing of such a petition the court:
(a) Shall cause notice thereof to be served upon any person involved in the charge. Such person, including the charging party, shall be given an opportunity to appear by counsel and present any relevant testimony.
(b) Has jurisdiction to grant such injunctive relief or temporary restraining order as it considers just and proper, notwithstanding any other provision of law.
(3) In situations where such relief is appropriate, the procedure specified in this section applies to charges with respect to ORS 663.140 (4).
