The Collective Bargaining Agreement
Our Current Collective Bargaining Agreement
The Collective Bargaining Agreement is the contract between the University of Oregon and United Academics. This version of the CBA is the most up-to-date version, incorporating several Memoranda of Understanding and copy-edited through a mutual process. This agreement was extended to June 2021 through an MOU signed the spring 2020.

David Cecil has worked in the labor movement for the last 15 years, most of those years with the Graduate Teaching Fellows Federation. Before his union career, he attended graduate school here at the UO, earning a MA in History, before discovering that he loved bargaining contracts more than he loved 19th-cenutry American medical-legal history. He does love bargaining contracts.
He currently serves on the Board of Advisors of the National Center for the Study of Collective Bargaining in Higher Education.
In his spare time, he drinks beer on the patio with his wife, tends to his blossoming record collection, and sleeps.
Memoranda of Understanding
Between semi-annual bargaining sessions, as issues arise the Collective Bargaining Agreement is supplemented with Memoranda of Understanding between United Academics and the university. These MOUs incorporate guidance on how the CBA is to be implemented and/or layout policies and procedures supplementing or augmenting those existent in the CBA.
