The Local 328 bargaining team would like to thank all the members who came to today’s town hall in person or watched via the live-stream! If you have any questions that weren’t answered today, just comment below or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We also plan to hold at least one more town hall as negotiations continue. (Evening- and night-shift employees: we’ll be holding events at 5:00 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. for you!) Stay tuned for details as we get these scheduled.
Your support means so much to those of us at the table, and your engagement in the bargaining progress is what will help lead our union to the fair contract our members deserve. We heard you loud and clear — we hope management did too!
We look forward to seeing you and your families at our bargaining rally on Thursday, June 13. We’ll start things off by gathering by the Mac Hall fountain at 4:00 p.m., and wrap things up with the BBQ/picnic ~6:15 p.m. We’d love it if folks can stay for the entire event, of course, but even if you can only stop by for a few minutes, please do! The more, the merrier — and the more of us who attend, the clearer it will be to OHSU that our members have had enough with the take-backs.
Finally, as today’s Labor Relations email from OHSU indicated, the bargaining forums with HR director Hollie Hemenway have finally been announced. The first event will be held on Wednesday, June 5, from 7:30 – 8:30 a.m. in Richard Jones Hall rm. 4320, and the second on Wednesday, June 19, from 2:00 – 3:00 p.m. in the Doernbecher 11th floor Vey Auditorium. Both of these venues hold ~150 people — let’s pack the rooms like we did today! We encourage our members to attend (wearing green and wearing your AFSCME buttons and stickers, of course) and respectfully engage as OHSU presents information about its proposals.
