Good News, CGE!
During our bargaining session on Wednesday, February 26th Jaime Rodriguez (the president of our parent union, AFT-Oregon) dropped off a $5,000 donation from the state federation to our hardship fund! With this influx of funds, we’re re-opening the application until next Friday (March 6) at 5:00pm. You can find the application here.
In order to keep offering the hardship fund, CGE has proposed language in bargaining for OSU to contribute funds (see the proposed Article 11 language here). We’ve clearly seen the need, now we need member testimony and support in pushing for OSU to agree. There is one day of bargaining left in winter term (Mar. 11 from 1pm to 4pm in Westminster House). Testimony can be from you directly at the bargaining session or you can provide anonymous testimony that will be read by a bargaining team member. If you’re interested, please reach out through this form. Together, we can push for university support to continue this clearly needed program.
