Members of the Graduate Teaching Fellows Federation voted to ratify the terms provided for in the tentative agreement reached by the parties in late October. This is the final step in the GTFF bargaining process and indicates that GTFF members accept the tentative agreement previously reached with the University of Oregon.
Now that the union has approved the contract, the university will begin developing a plan to implement the new terms and communicate the changes to campus.
A final version of the collective bargaining agreement will be posted on the human resources website in the near future. Once posted, department heads and other graduate employee supervisors should review the contract in order to fully understand the changes.
