The Oregon AFL-CIO, the statewide federation of labor unions representing over 300,000 working Oregonians and 288 affiliated local unions, has endorsed Congresswoman Suzanne Bonamici (Oregon CD-1) and Congresswoman Andrea Salinas (Oregon CD-6) for reelection to Congress. Both Congresswomen earned the Oregon AFL-CIO’s endorsement because of their strong voting records in Congress which have demonstrated a persistent advocacy for workers as well as satisfactory completion of a detailed questionnaire about future priorities in office.
“Oregon Labor is proud to stand behind Congresswomen Bonamici and Salinas in their campaigns to continue to represent Oregon in Congress,” said Graham Trainor, Oregon AFL-CIO President. “Both of these incredible leaders not only have strong pro-worker voting records, but they each possess a passionate spirit of advocacy for working families and supporting labor unions. Leaders like Congresswomen Bonamici and Salinas are essential to our mission to build a fair and just economy for all.
The Oregon AFL-CIO’s COPE (Committee on Political Education) Board will make additional endorsements throughout 2024, including on Congressional candidates, ballot initiatives, statewide elected officials, and state legislative candidates. The Oregon AFL-CIO operates the largest independent voter outreach program in Oregon and is prepared to educate and mobilize Oregon’s workers to support the federation’s endorsements in the 2024 Primary and General elections.
