Local 328 is encouraging it's members to attend the town hall meeting either in person or on line. For details see the article below.
The recent tort cap ruling by the Oregon Supreme court creates an immediate need for OHSU to save about 30 million dollars a year. This will result in some significant changes in programs over the next six months or so. OHSU has been meeting with the Union and will continue to meet with the Union about these changes. Right now, neither party knows exactly how these changes will roll out. As we get information we will continue to inform our members. In the meantime, please take the opportunity to view or attend the town hall.
