Our locals have been pro-active in building membership and a stronger union and we want to remain so as the school/academic year begins. AFT-Oregon is working with the Oregon AFL-CIO to present organizing trainings this month in Corvallis, Eugene/Springfield, Portland, and Salem. These trainings will help members to communicate about our union and our issues with fellow workers. Please notify any stewards, activists, and interested members to register:
