City of Portland Professional Workers Union

We are a group of City employees who have come together to form a union with our other non-represented colleagues. We are organizing together to have a voice in the workplace on issues that affect our work, our careers, our families, and our City. 

The classifications currently included in the union are Administrative Specialists, Analysts, Coordinators,  Financial Analysts, Hearing Officers, Multimedia Specialists & Technology Business Representatives. If your classification is not listed here, get in touch – let’s figure out how to get you included!

The union is led by a volunteer committee of City of Portland employees – the Organizing Committee. You are the union – every eligible member is encouraged to join the Organizing Committee or get involved in the union organizing effort in some other way. We are stronger when we work together!
