What We Do
We help to prevent and resolve workplace problems, and we work to ensure the Institute's compliance with legal requirements affecting employment.
Human Resources Officers (HROs) are assigned to the DLCs and are both an employee's and a DLC's primary contact for employment-related issues, both union and non-union.
The Office of Labor Relations is responsible for labor relations strategy and interpretation for the entire Institute. Working with contacts in the DLCs, it negotiates, interprets and administers five collective bargaining agreements at MIT: the Service Employees' International Union (SEIU) – campus; SEIU - Lincoln Laboratory; the Research, Development, and Technical Employees' Union (RDTEU, campus and Lincoln); the Lincoln Laboratory Security Officers' Independent Union (SOIU); and the Campus Police Association (CPA).
