Nominations Are Open for Our Bargaining Team

As negotiated in our recent agreement over the pay rates for academic year 2023-2024, we’ll be re-opening the full collective bargaining agreement for renegotiation no later than the end of July. HOU is looking for a cross-section of house officers to participate in the negotiations. This involves helping craft proposals and meeting with management to negotiate around issues like pay, PTO, the housing stipend, and more.

In preparation for bargaining, we’ve communicated with management, and they have indicated a willingness to work with OHSU program directors to get our bargaining team members released for bargaining sessions when necessary and possible, and to work with us to ensure minimal impact on residents’ training requirements.

If you are interested in serving in this important role to represent your colleagues in negotiations with management, please reach out to our AFSCME Representative Damon Di Cicco at [email protected] as soon as possible. He will follow up with you to provide more information and answer any questions you may have.

Please note that only union members in good standing are eligible to serve on the bargaining team. If you are not a member, or not sure if you are a member, please take a moment to apply for membership.
