HB 3170 Passes Oregon House

Oregon’s public university research faculty are one step closer to having a voice in their workplace. Yesterday, the Oregon House of Representatives passed AFT-Oregon's priority bill for the session, House Bill 3170, by a bipartisan vote of 36-23. Now that this bill has passed the House, it will move to the Oregon Senate.
 
This important bill will give public university research faculty the same ability to join a union and collectively bargain that other Oregon university faculty have.
