We’re excited to announce that the 2023 Oregon Labor Organizing Summit will be held on Wednesday, May 24 at IBEW Local 48 in Portland!
This one-of-a-kind event will feature National AFL-CIO President Liz Shuler as our keynote speaker! We’re planning engaging panel discussions, inspiring workshops, and ways for Oregon’s unions to come together and share resources about union organizing. Please note this event is only for union members, leaders, and staff of unions.
The theme of our summit is Our Power, Our Time, Our Movement. We’re seeing interest in union organizing spike in countless industries in Oregon and across the country. Having faced a pandemic and historic inflation, workers are turning towards the labor movement to achieve democracy, dignity and respect in the workplace. NLRB petitions for union elections have spiked and we know that together, we can and MUST take advantage of this moment and grow the Oregon Labor Movement.
