Unless the City of Portland comes to the table with a sensible offer that respects and values laborers employed by the city, LiUNA Local 483 members will take the heroic step of walking off the job tonight at midnight. As always, when any worker faces injustice, we all face injustice and the potential strike in Portland is no exception. It’s time for the Oregon Labor Movement to stand together and support these hard working laborers who truly make the City of Roses run day in and day out.
Here’s how you can help:

When workers go on strike it is the duty of the Labor Movement to help them hold the line and fight for a fair contract and dignity and respect on the job. Please do whatever you can to help LiUNA local 483 members reach a fair deal by supporting their strike efforts. Together, we can make a difference.
