New Year, New PAT

We are finally fully staffed! I want to introduce you to our two new Uniserv staff, Ryan Olds and Jessica Nuti!

Jessica Nuti comes to us from San Francisco by way of Germany. She was an organizer and representative at both SEIU Local 521 and SAG-AFTRA. There she worked with thousands of workers as well as over 80 worksites. Jessica just finished her Masters studies of Labor Policies and Globalization through the Global Labor University at the Berlin School of Economics and Law in Germany. Her passion, work experience, and education are in line with our PAT union values. We look forward to her work representing members and as the liaison to the Racial Equity Committee, Social Justice and Community Outreach Committee, Legislative Committee, and our External Organizers. Welcome Jessica!

Ryan Olds has worked for OEA since 2019 as a Uniserv Consultant in Klamath Falls where he has organized and bargained a strong contract for the Certified educators and Education Support Professionals (ESPs). He comes with a background in law and a strong organizing, bargaining, and union member training experience. We are excited to have Ryan working on our Bargaining Team and with our Bargaining committee, Nominations and Elections Committee, and Advocacy Committees. Welcome Ryan!

Ryan and Jessica’s addition will complete our UniServ Consultant team for PAT. John Berkey and Kathi Koenig are working on a limited basis until the end of October until our staff is onboarded. Your building reps will receive a communication around which staff will support which schools in the coming days.
