Oregon Federation of Teachers Records

Accession Number: 
3 linear feet (3 SB)

The Oregon Federation of Teachers Collection includes both the papers of the OFT and the Oregon Federation of Nurses and Health Professionals (OFNHP). The OFT was chartered in June 1952 and during that decade was successful in securing teacher tenure laws. During the 1960s and 1970s the OFT grew in size by organizing more workers in K-12, community college and higher education in faculty, nurses and classified positions. In the 1990s the OFT changed its’ name by convention to the Oregon Federation of Teachers, Education and Health Professionals (OFTHEP). The OFTHEP continued to help with locals in the state with bargaining, grievances and arbitrations.
The records of Oregon Federation of Teachers consist of correspondence and other materials relating to nurse, hospitals, health professionals, public employees, k-12 teachers as well as higher education faculty and staff. The collection has very good information on the issues facing various professions in the state of Oregon during the 1980s.
