As you may be aware—and as we informed you last summer—some Oregon State University faculty are working to organize a collective bargaining unit at OSU.
We continue to receive inquiries about this effort. Oregon law allows public employers to respond to questions they receive from employees during a union organizing drive. Last summer, the university created a web page to provide responses to such questions.
Recently, we updated the page and included responses to additional questions we have received since the fall. You may find this information on the Provost’s web page in the section entitled “From the Provost,” and on the Office of Human Resources web page under the section entitled “Faculty Union FAQs.”
To submit additional questions, please e-mail Susan Capalbo, senior vice provost for faculty affairs, at Susan.Capalbo@oregonstate.edu or Donna Chastain, interim chief human resources officer, at Donna.Chastain@oregonstate.edu.
