Stay up to date as your bargaining team builds the first contract for Graduate Researchers United!

Hello fellow scientists!

Bargaining for the first contract for OHSU graduate researchers kicked off with its first official session on March 15th. You probably have a general sense of what collective bargaining is, but what does an official contract bargaining session actually look like?


There are two parts to a bargaining session: table discussions and caucuses.

Hello fellow scientists,

On December 28, 2018 the Graduate Researchers United union of graduate employees was recognized by OHSU management. I’m sure it’s just a coincidence that this happened so soon after our social media day of action. On Friday, your bargaining team will sit down for the first time with OHSU management to start putting together the very first employment contract for graduate employees.
