2024 Priorities Header.png

The 2024 Oregon Legislature is an opportunity for the Oregon Labor Movement to advocate for all working people by passing bills that both build upon and defend the progress we have made. Oregon’s unions are united in our unwavering mission to build a fair and just economy for all working people in every community in our great state.


The affiliated unions of the Oregon AFL-CIO represent workers in every sector of our economy. We are healthcare workers, firefighters, grocery store workers, public employees, educators, construction workers, manufacturing workers, social workers and many more.


Together, we fight to make Oregon not only a great place to live but also a great place to work: Where workers are treated with dignity and respect and have the safest conditions possible to do their jobs and keep our state running every day.
