Dear Union Sisters & Brothers,
Much has happened in the past week for our Local 085. At Wednesday’s Executive Meeting, Carla informed she was leaving the University of Oregon for the new exciting opportunity as a Postdoctoral Researcher at Iowa State University.
I’m sad Carla is leaving. Our Executive committee, our stewards and our Field Reps are committed to supporting me in this transition so we can continue to fight the good fight in the weeks to come. Our unity – IN IT TOGETHER – is about all of us – with your engagement and participation at meetings, rallies and actions; your feedback on bargaining issues, your letters to our UO Executive Leadership, to Legislators and other ways you can contribute.
I look forward to serving you, and am proud and excited to be your new Local President.
Attached is Carla’s resignation letter.
IN IT TOGETHER
Theodora Ko Thompson, UO BA ’04, MS ’07
President, Local 085
