Thank you for taking action!
More from Oregon's Union Movement
“The activism and hard work displayed in Missouri prove that when we stand together and take action, anything is possible.”
On July 1, 270,000 working Oregonians earning minimum wage will receive a raise. The Oregon AFL-CIO, the statewide federation of unions, applauds this increase and remains committed to ensuring all workers have a pathway to prosperity.
“Oregon union members remain dedicated to sticking together, uniting more working people in unions and working with our state’s political leaders to create more good, union jobs.”
“President Trump’s executive action today addressing his own abusive policy of separating families at the border doesn’t end this humanitarian crisis.”
“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."
