News and Updates

Over the summer, we heard from many members who were upset that OHSU was phasing out belt-pagers and requiring people to use their personal devices to access the OHSU paging system.

Our first contract with OHSU is finally signed!

Dear Colleagues,

We're happy to announce that after almost 10 months of difficult negotiations, we have reached an agreement on our first union contract for OHSU house officers!

OHSU is now taking applications for Child Care Financial Support.  We wanted to make sure you were aware of this opportunity and the other Child Care Resources which OHSU has recently made available.

Dear Colleagues,

Last night, after a two week delay that they requested, OHSU delivered a counter-proposal on outstanding items. We had hoped that with the extra time and OHSU's better than expected financials, they would move the process forward in a substantial and meaningful way.

Unfortunately, they did not.

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
