Final Offer Info Coming Later Today

Share if you care


We know that everyone is anxious to see the details of Local 328’s final offer and our take on OHSU’s final offer. We’re working on detailed communications about this and will get a post up later today, as soon as we can.

In the meantime, you can review the information from our July 19 supposal (here) — in our final offer we made some movement from those numbers but, in general, our positions have remained close to what we proposed then. If you have any questions, please post them here.

Thank you for your patience. Solidarity!

  1. I would like to know if the cost of living adjustments will be awarded retroactively, whenever the contract eventually gets ratified. We are currently halfway through the second pay period which would have had the adjustment applied, and if progress cannot be reached by the end of the strike vote period, that is a total of four pay periods, plus however long the strike takes; not an insubstantial amount of money to miss out on.

    I am happy this is one of the points AFSCME is fighting so hard for; cost of living in Portland is a serious issue for myself and everyone I know!

  2. After reading through Ohsu’s detailed proposal, I am pleasantly surprised. No insurance take backs or spousal surcharge, bigger anniversary increases than our previous contract. That is what is most important to me.

    I would personally even choose the PTO option. They added additional pto accrual, meaning that even if I use 5 sick days, I still break even. If I don’t, I have even more vacation time. The 3 weeks paid maternity leave in the pto system is a must for me as well.

    I was angry and ready to strike, but I honestly think that they made big movement and I would be happy with the ohsu contract.

    1. Hi K, my opinion is that the insurance take back and spousal surcharge were absurd concepts from the get go. I don’t think the shift now makes them look any more willing to share the wealth.

      1. Exactly, Tami. Pulling the multiple health-insurance take-backs that would have hurt our members financially doesn’t signal generosity–it just means that we’re back to current contract language, after a tough fight.
