The Trump Administration has put the rights and status of more than 1 million working men and women at risk by ending the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and threatening to end Temporary Protected Status (TPS).

Join us to discuss how to make sure that our workplaces and unions are safe and inclusive spaces for women!

Latest Press Releases & Statements
Instead of giving massive handouts to the wealthy, we need fair tax and budget policies which raise revenue to invest in our infrastructure, good jobs, public education and essential benefits.
The unions of the Oregon AFL-CIO are thankful for Oregon’s Senators Wyden and Merkley who did everything they could to expose this shameful bill for what it is: another version of the same economic policies that benefit the wealthy while leaving working Americans behind.
The tax plan being touted by Republicans is not reform. Real tax reform would put money back into the pockets of working people. Their plan encourages offshoring and proposes cuts to vital programs like Medicaid, Medicare, education and infrastructure to cover the cost of tax breaks for the 1%.
The affiliated unions of the Oregon AFL-CIO send our condolences to the victims of the tragic violence in Las Vegas, and we stand in solidarity with all impacted by this incident.
Governor Kate Brown announced her campaign for reelection on Monday. Earlier this month, Governor Kate Brown addressed hundreds of union delegates of the Oregon AFL-CIO at the State Federation’s 55th Biennial Convention in Bend where she spoke on issues important to working people in Oregon.
The 55th Biennial Convention of the Oregon AFL-CIO adjourned today in Bend following two days of inspiring speeches and recommitment to the fight for economic and social justice.
The Governor’s dedication to Oregon’s working people and unions earned her boisterous applause from delegates and upon concluding her speech a motion came from the floor calling for the Oregon AFL-CIO’s endorsement for her campaign in 2018.
"The unions of the Oregon AFL-CIO will stand with these brave young workers and will continue to fight for legislation so that the contributions they make are celebrated, rather than assaulted.
“This Labor Day, as we celebrate the contributions of working families, let’s also pledge to do the hard work of transforming our economy so every single American can work for a better life.”
