Management is failing us.
Management is proposing meaningless raises that are far below inflation and asking low-wage workers to take huge, long-term wage reductions by cutting our steps in half. No other public employees in Oregon are being asked to take these kinds of cuts. The economy is strong. State funding is strong. Management can afford to do better.
Public universities are receiving record-high funding from our tax dollars. They should be providing affordable education and good jobs for our community, but instead they're raising tuition and putting the squeeze on low-wage workers. This will not stand.
