Oregon Health & Science University graduate students are about to become unionized.
Last month, the university dropped its objections to a bid by the students to form a bargaining unit, paving the way for negotiations between the university the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, AFSCME.
“We consider it a big victory to not have to go through a court case,” said Ross Grami, communications director for Oregon AFSCME.
