Our union represents approximately 1,530 classified employees at Oregon State University.

SubLocal 083 is part of the statewide Service Employees International Union Local 503, Oregon Public Employees Union.

Our union is member-driven and staff-supported, we democratically elect stewards, local and statewide officers, and bargaining delegates who negotiate the collective bargaining agreement between classified employees of the state universities and the Oregon University System. The collective bargaining agreement sets the wages and working conditions for all classified employees for the length of the contract. A new bargaining cycle will start in 2019. Contact us for more information or to find out how to get more involved. We currently hold monthly meetings the 3rd Thursdays of the month at Valley Library from 11 – 12:30 pm or in the MU. Worksite meetings can be set up to accommodate your office location and schedule.  We want all union members to get active, and plugging in is the first step. Contact us to set up a worksite meeting or 1:1.
