Statement of solidarity with Oregon Tech faculty strike

The Graduate Teaching Fellows Federation (AFT Local 3544) expresses solidarity with the striking faculty members at Oregon Institute of Technology. We are proud that former GTFF leaders Ellen Kress and Malori Musselman are part of this effort as organizers with the American Association of University Professors (AAUP).

GTFF urges the OIT administration to negotiate in good faith and agree to a contract that provides fair wages, benefits, and workload limits for faculty. We also call on community members and political representatives to show support on the picket line for these faculty members and their union, the Oregon Tech-AAUP.

Here are a few ways to support Oregon Tech faculty members on strike:

Sign the petition for a fair contract.

Sign up for a picket line shift at the Wilsonville or Klamath Falls locations.

Join the livestream of their picket on the OT-AAUP’s Facebook page.

Share solidarity pictures and statements on your social media accounts.
