One of the main responsibilities of full members of the union is to vote on whether or not to ratify collective bargaining agreements. The provisions bargained by your negotiating team cannot go into effect unless approved by the membership.
United Academics will be conducting a ratification vote October 6th-9th in order to allow all eligible members of United Academics to have their say on the agreement reached in August.
On October 6, eligible members of United Academics can vote at the General Membership Meeting from 5-7 pm in the Ford Alumni Center.
October 7, 8, and 9, eligible members can cast a ballot in the union office at 872 E. 13th Ave between the hours of 9 am and 4:30 pm.
Members eligible to vote are those that were employed by the University of Oregon in the last 12 months and were or are full members when employed. Faculty who are not full members but would like to vote on the CBA can join the union at the General Membership Meeting or the union office.
