Dear Colleagues,

We are excited to receive OHSU's response to our economic proposals next Thursday, August 13th. As we continue in this process, we'd like to ensure that our decisions at the bargaining table reflect the priorities of our 900 member-constituents.

Please take this brief summary (https://form.jotform.com/202175065486154) to help us prioritize our remaining proposals for our union contract and as always, let us know if you'd like to attend our next virtual bargaining session!

In Solidarity,

Colleagues,

We hope you've been able to schedule your fourth week of vacation and that the academic year is off to a great start.

Congratulations! Your bargaining team is happy to announce our first (tentative until we all vote on the final contract) major contract provisions! We reached agreement today with OHSU on a package proposal that includes the following:

·     4 weeks of vacation for all residents starting in 2020

·     Maintains 3 weeks of Paid Parental Leave

·     Allows a back-dated date of hire for residents in their second year whose preliminary year is not offered at OHSU, so they are not without protected leave for an extra year

We had a productive session on Thursday, June 4th with several resident observers in attendance.  We are moving forward in good faith toward agreement on a proposal that includes four weeks of vacation for every resident, an item of high importance to our HOU constituents.

Our bargaining team has been hard at work to get all of our major bargaining proposals out on the table so we can begin to really negotiate with management over what will be in our first union contract.
