Thank you for taking action!
More from Oregon's Union Movement
“We are proud to see Val Hoyle - a lifelong advocate for working people who comes from a union family and shares our values -win the race for Oregon’s Labor Commissioner. She is the leader we need at the Bureau of Labor and Industries to protect workers’ rights, expand registered apprenticeships, and fight harassment and discrimination in the workplace.”
Workers in Oregon and across the country are watching as this historic campaign moves forward, and Oregon’s union movement stands ready to support Burgerville’s workers however we can.
"State Representative Buehler’s record as a legislator shows us where his values are, and what kind of a Governor he wants to be. From voting against increasing our minimum wage to his opposition to Oregon’s paid sick leave law, he is not prioritizing the needs of working people."
“Janus is simply another blatant attempt to rig the rules of the economy against working people. At a time when income inequality is on the rise, rents are getting higher, and healthcare is treated as a privilege of the wealthy, unions remain the single most important tool workers have to achieve economic freedom. That’s why we are under attack, and that is why we are committed to fighting back and organizing for a brighter future.”
"If he is serious about fixing our nation’s infrastructure problem, President Trump could learn a lot from Governor Kate Brown’s approach."
"Governor Kate Brown has consistently demonstrated her leadership, from driving a bipartisan effort to fund infrastructure improvements to standing up against hate, injustice and inequity."
"President Trump gave an optimistic speech, but his perspective of America is far from the reality of most Americans. The working women and men of our nation are not seeing the same country he described in his speech, thanks to the policies his administration has put forward."
"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."
“Today’s data is more than numbers, it tells us a powerful story and gives working people hope for a better future. It’s about workers standing together to bring forward positive change at work. That’s what belonging to a union is about: standing shoulder to shoulder with your coworkers to protect your freedom to find prosperity, to earn a decent living, to have safe working conditions and respect and dignity on the job."
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.
