United Academics Supports GTFF in Bargaining

The Graduate Teaching Fellows Federation (GTFF), the union representing over 1,500 graduate employees at the UO, is currently bargaining its contract with the UO administration.

On February 4, the United Academics Executive Council unanimously passed the following resolution in support of the GTFF:

A strong contract for the GTFF supports the research and teaching missions of UO. GTFs are critical contributors to the research and educational programs throughout the university. United Academics recognize their vital role and stands with the GTFF in their negotiations. Defending and strengthening their contract are essential ways to help recruit, retain and support graduate students, who enliven and enable the educational and research mission across the UO.

The bargaining sessions between the GTFF and the UO are open to the public—please consider coming to an upcoming session to support the GTFF and learn more about the many issues facing graduate employees—upcoming bargaining dates will be listed here.

In addition, faculty and other GTFF supporters can sign a petition in support of the GTFF here.
