OT-AAUP Executive Council
It has been almost three years since the majority of faculty at Oregon Institute of Technology voted to form our union: Oregon Tech - American Association of University Professors (OT-AAUP). Since December 2019, we have been bargaining for our first contract.
While we have reached a few tentative agreements (leaves, grievances, arbitration, etc.), we remain far apart on issues that are top priorities for faculty (benefits, compensation, certain working conditions, etc.).
Oregon Tech’s administrative bargaining team has indicated that they have no intention of negotiating over key issues like faculty promotion and tenure—despite the presence of these provisions in every faculty contract in the state. Recently, their team proposed fewer mediation sessions which would further delay an agreement.
Read and sign the full petition demanding that the administration settle a fair contract
