Seaside, Oregon – Taking a strong stance against the actions of a former Oregon AFL-CIO President, today the 56th Convention of the Oregon AFL-CIO passed a resolution to sanction Timothy Nesbitt. Oregon AFL-CIO President Tom Chamberlain explained why this resolution is an important statement from Oregon’s unions:
Timothy Nesbitt has continued to exploit his past role as a union leader to give clout to his anti-public worker PERS Solutions organization that continually misconstrues false solutions as facts. We have had enough. He does not speak for workers, and henceforth, he will be excluded from any future Oregon AFL-CIO event and in no uncertain terms, we condemn his actions against working people.
