Bargaining

Contract and Impact Bargaining

Collective bargaining is one of the most important functions of any union. Through collective bargaining, our union is able to secure better working conditions and protections for our bargaining unit members. Our current collective bargaining agreement (CBA) is in effect through June 2024. To prepare for negotiating our next CBA we conducted a bargaining survey in spring 2023, convened several workgroups in spring and summer 2023 where members dug in on specific issues for bargaining, and hosted a series of listening sessions in fall 2023 to give faculty a chance to discuss their priorities with the bargaining team.

Now our team has reached an agreement on Ground Rules for negotiations is engaged in substantive negotiations with the admin team. We won access for in-person observation of bargaining, which will be open to OSU faculty, staff, and students. Transparency is a core value of our union, and open bargaining allows our members to come see the proceedings for themselves.

Upcoming Bargaining Sessions

Members of the OSU community are invited to observe contract negotiations. You can come and go as your schedule allows. Even if you can only drop by for half an hour, your attendance matters: Show the administration that faculty care about this process. Sessions will be held in at the LaSells Stewart Center unless otherwise noted. Click the links to add these details to your calendar.
