Last academic year a strong majority of faculty members signed authorization cards for the certification of our union, UAOSU. Now that the Employment Relations Board has certified our union, it is time for our membership drive.
Signing a union membership card means you can actively shape the direction of our union. As a member, you can vote on the constitution, bylaws, elected leadership, collective bargaining agreement ratification, and dues rates. Being a member also means joining a community of OSU teaching and research faculty, and a community of faculty across the nation through our affiliates, the American Association of University Professors (AAUP) and the American Federation of Teachers (AFT).
In addition to the membership drive, we are also preparing for our first contract negotiations with OSU administration. It is important to ensure that we represent all faculty at the bargaining table. To this end, your participation in the bargaining survey (by October 24th) and signing up for union membership demonstrates the priorities of faculty to the administration.
Please consider becoming a member by signing a membership card with a faculty activist in your area or by contacting us at email@example.com.Online Viewing UAOSUMC Annotated Sheet PDF
