Oregon’s Unions Applaud Passage of Measure 101

(PORTLAND, ORE.) Oregon AFL-CIO President Tom Chamberlain has responded to the passage of Ballot Measure 101:

“Oregon’s voters have spoken: everyone deserves access to affordable healthcare. Our state is one where we see Medicaid as essential for children, for seniors, for people with disabilities and for workers.  Oregon’s unions played a tremendous role in passing Measure 101, and by mobilizing union members in cities around the state we sent a strong message:  Every Oregonian, especially the most vulnerable, should have access to healthcare.  I’m inspired by what we accomplished together, and through our hard work alongside 175 organizations to pass Measure 101, we have set a course to continue winning elections for working people in 2018.”
