Quick update on the $34 Summer Session Tuition Base grievance. We just found out that the OSU administration deferred to the Oregon Department of Justice to handle the grievance for them in arbitration. In other words, little old CGE is going to be arguing the case against well trailed lawyers whose job is to know Oregon law. Doesn’t matter. It’ll make it that much sweeter to win the thing.
Those of you who are interested in this grievance, start getting fired up. We’re going to need all the member support we can get for this. Though we don’t know if it’ll be possible, our goal is to have members be able to attend the arbitration hearing. I think we might be able to put the DoJ folks off their game a bit if sea of grads show up sporting their (new, black) CGE t-shirts and beanies.
