Classified Folks-Today has been a busy day, but not quite like I expected... We still have a lot of technical details to work out, both internally and with HR, but things are going well so far. I have been amazed by the positive responses - from individual members, from from other organizations, from the media - echoing the same message I have been sharing: Our strength comes from our membership - from our solidarity - from our numbers. In fact, since the Janus decision this morning, enough new members signed up to boost our membership solidly above 75%!!
It says a lot that over 3/4 of our bargaining unit has said yes to being a full member, and I look forward to even more in the coming weeks.THINGS YOU CAN DO TODAY/: - Wear your union T-shirt (or just something union blue if you prefer) , June 28, to show solidarity and support for OUR UNION. - Take action on social media and tell the world why you support unions! Make your post public and tag our local on Facebook and Twitter and/or AFT-Oregon on Facebook and Twitter with the hashtags #WeRise #UnionStrong #IamAFT #FreedomtoJoin #Union. - If you're in Portland, join us for a Union Strong Rally at at Portland City Hall.
Until (unless I see you ...)
