We did it! After months of members standing up for a fair contract and a better OUS, we have ratified our 2013-2015 contract!
We believe this is the best agreement that we could reach given financial realities of some OUS campuses (click here to view a summary of the ratified agreement). We will continue to bring public and legislative attention to important issues like living wages, adequate funding for student services, and administrative bloat.
Most importantly, this contract is only possible because thousands of members from Portland to Ashland, from LaGrande to Newport, stood strong and united for fair treatment and a return to economic security. The strength, tenacity and courage that we showed throughout the campaign is nothing less than awe-inspiring.
