Statement from Oregon AFL-CIO President Tom Chamberlain on Oregon’s New Governor

“Governor Kate Brown has a long history of standing up for working Oregonians, and for supporting our unions.  She’ll bring the same qualities to the Governor’s office that brought her success as our Secretary of State: a transparent, fair and balanced approach to the priorities that we hold dear as Oregonians. 

Her record on unions and workers’ rights speaks for itself, I’m hopeful that as Governor she’ll be able to get more people back to work and start rebuilding Oregon’s middle class.  I look forward to working with her to ensure that our economy works for all Oregonians.”
