Organizing Press Conference
Union members across Oregon are trying something new - and it's working. Oregon has seen union membership increase most of the last five years, even as states across the country see more and more unorganized workers struggling to make ends meet. But union members in Oregon decided they needed to do more to help workers who were interested in forming a union on the job.
Officers Were Sworn in at a Meeting on February 14th of the Marion-Polk-Yamhill Counties Central Labor Council (MPYCCLC), AFL-CIO by Oregon Secretary of State Kate Brown.
Salem, OR – Delegates from 22 local unions installed Kathy Bonogofski to lead the mid-Willamette Valley labor umbrella group. Kathy Bonogofski, a Chapter President with Oregon School Employees Association, will serve a two-year term as Council President of Marion-Polk-Yamhill Counties Central Labor Council, a local labor federation chartered by the AFL-CIO. The labor council’s mission is to coordinate local union political efforts, raise organized labor's visibility, and organize a community response when workers are wronged … in short, to build the power of working people.
