Bargaining Sessions

Join us! We are back at the table in Chiles 125 from 12:30-3:30pm on May 16, May 23, and June 13. Hopefully, you can join us in person, but a remote option is also available. The support and presence of our faculty at sessions sends an important signal.

Spring Picnic

United Academics invites you to an end-of-year picnic! Family members are welcome to join. 

Caucus Meetings & Socials

Some caucuses are social, some are working groups. All are important for building community.

Working Families Caucus

The Working Families Caucus formed in response to concerns about the University of Oregon’s family and parental leave policies, as well as other concerns of working family members, like caregiving. Email Lynn Fujiwara at [email protected] if you are interested in joining the Working Families Caucus. Zoom in!

Pride Caucus

The UA Pride Caucus aims to foster connection and solidarity among faculty from across campus who care about workplace and social issues related to gender identity and sexual orientation. Email Lynn Fujiwara at [email protected] if you are interested in joining the Pride Caucus.

Faculty of Color Caucus

The caucus understands its constituency expansively. It is a forum for faculty who care about issues of equity, inclusion, and diversity in the workplace and off campus. Email Lynn Fujiwara at [email protected] if you are interested in joining the Faculty of Color Caucus.

Committees

Standing Committees meet regularly and are always looking for new members. If you are a UA member interested in serving on a committee, email us.

CONTRACT ACTION TEAM

The CAT works to support the Bargaining Team during and in the run-up to bargaining. This year the CAT is combined with the Organizing & Membership Committee to form OMCAT.

GRIEVANCE & CONTRACT ADMINISTRATION

 GCAC helps faculty during the grievance process, and in assessing whether informal processes may lead to a better outcome. GCAC works closely with the VPs for faculty affairs on matters of promotion denial.

FINANCE & BUDGET

The Finance & Budget Committee proposes the annual budget to the Representative Assembly for approval. They ensure United Academics remains a financially viable organization.

POLITICS

The Politics Committee vets endorsements for local and state-wide political office. They also help direct the legislative priorities of the lobbyists of our state affiliates, and maintain relationships with local politicians and university lobbyists. 

COMMUNICATIONS

The Communications Committee is the editorial board for the Duck & Cover newsletter, our social media feeds, out-going email communications and press releases. They determine the tone of all of our external communications.

ORGANIZING & MEMBERSHIP

Organinzing & Membership (currently combined with the CAT to form OMCAT) is responsible for building the United Academics community.
