Mac Hall Lawn, 3266 SW Research Drive

In recent weeks, we've seen OHSU unilaterally implement unfunded wage increases for research workers that have led to layoffs.  Our colleagues in Graduate Research United find themselves in a similar bind in their ongoing contract negotiations--their members need robust pay increases to keep up with the cost of living in Portland, but many of their PI's grants are already stretched to the limit.  Our bargaining team will doubtless face the same challenges.

There is one solution: OHSU must cover the research gap. Creating unfunded mandates of pay increases only puts OHSU’s lowest paid employees at risk of losing their jobs. OHSU’s global reputation is built upon the cutting edge research that our members and future members make possible. If OHSU wants to be a top tier research institute, they need to support their research staff. It’s time for OHSU to step up and make it possible for them to make a decent living.

 Join us in raising your voice to tell OHSU it must value research and research workers!

This really is cosponsored by Graduate Researchers United and Research Workers United.
