Administration, faculty union set first bargaining session for June 4

The bargaining teams for the Oakland University administration and the OU chapter of the American Association of University Professors (OU-AAUP) will meet June 4 for their first bargaining session.

The current contract between the administration and OU-AAUP was agreed to in September 2021 and expires in August 2024. The administration is looking forward to beginning negotiations and is eager to engage with a forward-looking perspective, focusing on productive discussions. OU leaders recognize the importance of providing faculty members with the resources and tools they need to perform their work, as well as compensating them fairly for their efforts in advancing the University’s educational and research missions.

After each bargaining session, the administration will provide an overview of what is being discussed and progress made. However, some specifics will be avoided as the best place to have discussions regarding the faculty union contract is at the bargaining table.
