SEIU members ratify new terms for their bargaining agreement

Members of the Service Employees International Union have voted to ratify the terms in the tentative agreement reached with Oregon’s public universities in February. This is the final step in the SEIU bargaining process allowing implementation of the new terms to begin.

A focal point of negotiations was compensation terms, which are outlined on the HR website. Several other contract terms will also be updated. Human Resources will provide more information as it becomes available.

The current collective bargaining agreement stipulated terms for reopening negotiations on select terms midway through the current contract. The reopened negotiations began in October of last year progressing through mediation earlier this year until an agreement was reached.
