The Oregon Employment Relations Board announced that Personal Support workers voted 1,873 to 772 in favor of representation by SEIU.
This means that SEIU will soon begin bargaining with Oregon’s Department of Administrative Services and the Home Care Commission to create a contract for PSW working with people with developmental disabilities.
Currently, SEIU represents PSW working with people with physical disabilities or who are elderly. Click to view those workers’ current contract.
Please check back frequently as we will be posting news of the negotiations as we receive them.
