      Join the OHSU/AFSCME Labor Management Committee

      Want to make OHSU a better place to work?

      As an AFSCME-represented employee, you are eligible to apply for two open seats on the OHSU/AFSCME Labor Management Committee a collaboration between OHSU and AFSCME that brings employees and managers together with the mission of improving the workplace.

      Why join?

      Connect with people from across OHSU to implement lasting positive change. The LMC created the Career and Workplace Enhancement Center and partnered with the Information Technology Group to bring Lynda.com access to all OHSU employees. With LMC members, you can develop and lead new projects that make OHSU a better place to work. Plus, membership looks great on your resume.

      What seats are currently open?

      The LMC recruits on an annual basis and is seeking AFSCME-represented employees for two open seats.

      Who is on the committee?

      Six AFSCME-represented employees and six managers with AFSCME-represented staff compose the LMC, representing OHSU across mission areas. See the current membership on O2.

      What is the time commitment?

      Joining requires a minimum four-hour-per-month time commitment to attend a monthly meeting (a total of ten meetings per year). AFSCME-represented employees attend the meetings on paid time, as negotiated in the current bargaining agreement. Additional time may be required for delegated tasks. Membership is on a rolling two-year rotation.

      Apply now!

      Applications and a position description can be found on the membership page. The LMC welcomes members from all OHSU campuses and clinics. You do not need to work on Marquam Hill or in Portland to apply. Applications due by February 8.

      Grant provides health care job training for employees

      As part of its commitment to diversity and employee development, OHSU has secured a grant that will offer fully-funded job training to up to 40 employees through the NW Promise Grant. Current employees who qualify and are selected will receive free training in one of the following in-demand health care jobs:

      • Certified Nursing Assistant 1 and 2
      • Medical Assistant
      • Medical Coding

      Visit this O2 page for details on the criteria to qualify and how employees can apply.

      This program was developed by the OHSU-AFSCME Community Employment Committee as a part of both organizations’ commitment to increasing the diversity of OHSU’s workforce and providing development opportunities for employees. OHSU and AFSCME partnered with other local health care institutions and received a NW Promise diversity grant from the Department of Labor through Worksystems, Inc. Worksystems is a non-profit organization that pursues and invests resources to improve the quality of the workforce in the City of Portland and in Multnomah and Washington Counties.
