After 17 months of bargaining and an historic 8-day strike, the first for Oregon’s public university faculty, Oregon Tech AAUP announced today that they had reached a tentative agreement with the administration.

Over the past week hundreds of faculty, students, and community members stood with striking faculty on street corners in Klamath Falls, Wilsonville, and on Facebook, and together, we won!

Some highlights from the newly minted tentative agreement include:

  • Fair Wages that guarantees increases for faculty across the life of the agreement and establishing mechanisms to address inequities across campus;
  • Workload Protections for both Tenure Track and Non-Tenure Track Faculty across all campuses which recognizes non-instructional labor and guarantees the faculty the right to bargain any future changes;
  • Benefit Guarantees through the life of the contract and which are tied firmly to the benefits of the other workers on campus.

From all of us here at AAUP Oregon: CONGRATULATIONS!
