Hillsboro. Beaverton. Sunnyside. Corvallis. Portland.
Across Oregon, workers are walking picket lines demanding fair contracts, dignity, and respect on the job. Last week, IUOE Local 701 made headlines by taking their fight to the front steps of Republic Services where workers were joined by elected leaders, community members, and unions from throughout the region.
Next week, we expect to see UFCW Local 555 members strike at Kaiser and over 1,300 OFNHP, AFT Local 5017 members strike at PeaceHealth in SW Washington. Both unions plan to begin their strikes on Monday, October 23. Stay tuned for more information!
This week we’re asking for Oregon Labor to continue to mobilize to support striking workers from UFCW Local 555, UAW Local 492, and IUOE Local 701. Here’s how you can help:
