After six days on strike, the AAUP chapter at Oregon Institute of Technology successfully settled their first collective bargaining agreement. The new CBA includes significant improvements across a range of issues that inspired the faculty to unionize in the first place: workload, compensation, academic freedom, and more.
This victory is an important step forward for higher education, the AAUP, and the academic labor movement.
We congratulate the faculty on their new contract and their successful strike, and we thank the AAUP membership for showing your support in your messages, comments, and social media posts.
Director, AAUP Department of Organizing and Services
