Portland Card Signing Event

Portland Card Signing Event
Wednesday, May 31st, 4:30-6:30pm
Growler Guys, 
3739 SW Bond Ave

We have reached the final step in gaining legal recognition of our faculty union at OSU! The card check process requires a majority of all eligible faculty sign an authorization card in order to approve our union. Signing a card is a ‘yes’ vote, and not signing constitutes a ‘no.’ This makes the process even more democratic than a traditional election by giving every faculty member an equal voice in the process.

Join us for a signing event at Growler Guys to sign your card and be part of this historic moment!

As you likely know, we have reached the final step in gaining legal recognition of our faculty union at OSU. The card check process requires a majority of all eligible faculty sign an authorization card in order to approve our union. Signing a card is a ‘yes’ vote, and not signing constitutes a ‘no.’ This makes the process even more democratic than a traditional election, where the outcome is determined only by those who choose to cast a ballot within a narrow window. This higher threshold for demonstrating majority support gives every faculty member an equal voice in the process and removes the possibility for abstention. It’s therefore crucial that every faculty member has the full opportunity to make an informed decision. We hope you’ll stop by our office hours to have your questions answered and to sign your card if you’re in support.
