    • What's New at AFSCME 328

      By Tara Carnes, Local 328 PAC Chair

      Recent events from across the nation and from our own government reinforce our need to stand together against hate and discrimination and emphasizes our critical need to join with each other. Our nation, as well as OHSU and our Union, should include a wide variety of diverse voices. This diversity ensures representation across all voices, and serves as a critically important aspect to create equity at work and in our communities.

      The American Federation of State, County & Municipal Employees (AFSCME) wants to invite you to our first Diversity Event, which will showcase the diversity of OHSU’s employees and students, and will connect passionate individuals willing to take a stand against discrimination. 

      Be engaged and let your voice join others. Network with co-workers from diverse backgrounds represented by the Employee Resource Groups. Watch the film, "At The River I Stand" about Martin Luther King and the Memphis sanitation workers strike. Enjoy light refreshments, start a conversation, find out how AFSCME works for you, how diversity in research helps spread knowledge, and how similar we all are.  Listen to a speaker. Ask questions.

      Please print the attached flier and share with your coworkers.

      The last few months have seen some changes in the partnership between Tuality and OHSU. Earlier this year OHSU acquired the Orenco clinic and their employees, and, effective June 3rd, OHSU will acquire Tuality IT employees.

      As well as becoming OHSU employees the transferring Tuality employees also become employees represented by AFSCME Local 328. Orenco employees received a brief orientation to our union at one of their morning huddles and members there signed membership cards within a couple of weeks. They now have a trained shop steward on site and all the protections of a comprehensive collective bargaining agreement, otherwise known as a union contract.

      In both cases “accretion agreements” were approved and signed off on by both OHSU and the Local 328 Executive Board. These agreements guarantee immediate representation by our union and the maintenance of Tuality earned seniority for purposes of vacation accrual and layoff protection.

      Tuality IT employees will be given a full orientation to our union sometime after June 3rd – the exact date and time has not been determined – and we will have ample time to introduce ourselves and give you a chance to sign a membership card.

      In the meantime we are happy to answer any questions either Orenco or Tuality IT employees might have. Go to our website: and click on the “contact us” button on the top menu bar.

      We, at Local 328, extend a sincere welcome to our union and we want you to know we will be there for you when you need us.
