2016 Oregon AFL-CIO Endorsements
The Oregon AFL-CIO represents over 300,000 working Oregonians, through over 40 affiliated unions and our community affiliate, Working America. We represent working people from Klamath Falls to Portland, the Wallowas to Coos Bay. Our membership is diverse and includes everyone from teachers, firefighters and grocery store workers to electricians and aerospace workers. We come together as the Oregon AFL-CIO because we believe in one simple idea: when working people stand together, we can create positive changes for everyone.
The Oregon AFL-CIO Committee on Political Education votes to endorse candidates and ballot measures based on how they will impact not only our unions, but all working people in the state of Oregon. We carefully consider what each candidate and ballot measure will do to help communities across our state, including schools, healthcare, the right to form a union, trade policies, and much more.
Voting is our chance as working people to support those who support us. Who you vote for is your personal decision, but we hope that you will take the Oregon AFL-CIO’s endorsements into consideration as you fill out your ballot. No matter who you vote for, be sure to vote. Ballots are due by 8pm on November 8th.
