Collective Bargaining

We at PSU-AAUP take pride in supporting everyone in our bargaining unit. We represent over 1,200 Portland State Faculty and Academic Professionals at the bargaining table, through the grievance process, and legislative work at the Capitol. 

Collective Bargaining for your workplace rights is at the heart of all that we do here at PSU-AAUP.  We strive to maintain high standards in your workplace because we believe that University working conditions are student learning conditions. Whether at the bargaining table or engaging with University administrators to maintain the current contract PSU-AAUP is working for you!
