You're invited to a General Membership Meeting! Come for a bargaining update and discussion and to ask us your questions. Both meetings will cover the same topics so you only need to attend one. Day: Thursday, January 14Time: 12-1 p.m. OR 5-6 p.m.Wher ...
We did not plan to write any updates over the holiday break, as we know most employees are taking the time to rest and recharge away from our work emails. Unfortunately, the last week has not been restful for all our classified family, and it is with heavy hearts that we felt we must share the following.
Good News! The College has recently ordered KN95 masks and will make them available to all classified employees who request one. They will be distributed through Public Safety in the same way that the other masks are distributed.
We’ll send out another message once they’ve arrived and are available for distribution (the order was just completed today).
Wondering about the difference between N95 and KN95?

Kate Brown recently announced a “Two-Week Freeze” for Oregon (a partial lock-down from November 18 to December 2) to help slow the spread of COVID-19. In anticipation of questions regarding College operations and essential College employees still working on campus, we wanted to share what we know at this time.
We wanted to share with you a resource that Lines for Life has recently rolled out statewide. The Oregon Helpers Initiative is geared towards supporting workers who are helping others and offers peer-facilitated Virtual Wellness Rooms to communities statewide. These drop-in peer support meetings are open to all frontline workers including medical and behavioral health providers, social workers, home caregivers, educators, and more.
So many of you are working to support our community and our students through this harrowing time. We are grateful for all the work you do and hope this resource can be a support for you to find connection and prioritize your own wellness.
