SubLocal 085 represents over 1,300 University of Oregon Classified Employees. Our union is member-driven and staff-supported, we democratically elect stewards, local and statewide officers, and bargaining delegates who negotiate the collective bargaining agreement between classified employees of the state universities and the University Shared Services Enterprise. The collective bargaining agreement sets the wages and working conditions for all classified employees for the length of the contract. A new bargaining cycle will start in 2019. Contact us for more information or to find out how to get more involved. We currently hold monthly meetings the 2nd Wednesday of the month from 12-1pm in the EMU Diamond Lake Room (check Calendar to verify location). Worksite meetings can be set up to accommodate your office location and schedule. We want all union members to get active, and plugging in is the first step. Contact us to set up a worksite meeting or 1:1.
