We are VERY pleased to announce that on Tuesday March 13, United Academics filed union authorization cards – signed by a clear majority of UO tenure-related, non-tenure-track, and research faculty - with the state Employment Relations Board (ERB).
This is an important milestone and moves us one key step closer to forming our union and restoring a strong faculty voice in the future of the UO. Our union will be formally certified once the ERB confirms that the signed cards do indeed represent a majority.
United Academics includes tenure-related faculty, non-tenure-track faculty, and research faculty. In addition to the solid overall majority, the union authorization cards we presented to the state ERB included majorities in each of the classifications of faculty represented.
Congratulations to everyone on this significant achievement! Turning in a majority in cards represents thousands of hours of active engagement by hundreds of faculty members to promote thoughtful discourse with each other and build a union together. Well done!
Your union – the United Academics of the University of Oregon – is committed to advancing the UO’s mission as a public research institution that serves its students and the people of Oregon.
