Want to learn more about our past negotiations? Below you can find the archive for previous rounds of bargaining.
Professor of Teaching: During the summer of 2023 we engaged in negotiations with the administration to figure out how the new Professor of Teaching category will work in practice. The Faculty Senate spent a few years working on the creation of a new Professor of Teaching category and negotiating its implementation was the final step to create this rank. You can find all the information about these negotiation here.
Paid Leave Oregon: During the 2022-2023 academic year we were in negotiations with the OSU administration around the implementation of Paid Leave Oregon (PLO). PLO is a victory for Oregon workers that establishes a new state-wide program that will provide up to twelve weeks of paid leave to most Oregon workers. In mid-July we reached a final agreement with the administration. You can read the final Letter of Agreement (LOA) here and the overview of this LOA here. All our proposals and updates from these negotiations are available here.
Salary Bargaining: Financial uncertainty in 2020 triggered by the Covid-19 pandemic caused the administration and UAOSU to postpone salary increase negotiations until the spring 2021. You can find all the information about these negotiations here. You can see our members’ bargaining priorities here.
Campus Re-Opening Bargaining: The university administration’s plan to return our bargaining unit to onsite work in fall 2021 triggered impact bargaining. You can find all the information about these negotiations here.
