We’re Bargaining a New CBA!

Fall Schedule: United Academics will be hitting the virtual bargaining table for two sessions this term. Our first session will be this week Friday, Nov. 19 from 9:30 to 11:30am. The second session of the term will be held on Friday, Dec. 10 from 9am to noon. Mark your calendars!

Zoom in for both webinar format sessions here.

UA’s Bargaining Team plans to present a counter on Internal Governance and new proposals on Fringe Benefits, Hiring Information, and Home Campus.

Winter Schedule: Beginning January, we will meet twice a month, likely in person (with either very large room capacity or a Zoom stream, so members can watch). Additional details will be shared as soon as possible.

Diversity and Equity Updates

United Academics VP for Diversity and Equity Lynn Fujiwara would like to gather information about how membership engages and works with the caucuses. Would you like to join a caucus? What would you like to see happen in the caucus? Is there a different caucus or working group you’d like to see formed? This brief survey will help future organizing and best ways to focus our collective energies.

You can also email Lynn (fujiwara@uauoregon.org) or Kristy (kristy@uauoregon.org) if you would like to be added to any of our existing caucuses.

Join the Representative Assembly

Representatives and stewards constitute the Representative Assembly. They meet twice per term to discuss workplace and organizational concerns, as well as the strategic direction of our union. The Rep Assembly serves as a crucial balance to the Executive Council, offering a wide perspective of our bargaining unit across campus. Reps also have an important responsibility for revising our somewhat neglected Constitution and Bylaws, an important task for this AY.

Email Heather if you would like to learn more about these opportunities.

UA Office Hours

For the remainder of fall term, the Union Hall will be open Mondays through Thursdays from 10:00am – 4:00pm and by appointment. As always, you can contact the staff at 541-636-4714 or  info@uauoregon.org.
