No Printer? No Time? No Problem!

Volunteers are standing by to help make this easy for you. You can also find our authorization (petition) cards on most union boards throughout City facilities including in all Portland Building mail rooms. Your signature on our confidential and obligation-free petition simply helps get us to a vote! That’s all. Wanna vote? Sign today and we’ll be one step closer!

We Got This!

People are exerting their power for the first time in a long time. This is Democracy at work. Unions are winning elections all over the country (see the article from Vox below). Do you think our region and the world would be in the state it’s in if people had stood up over the last 200 years and demanded better from their governments and employers? No! Now is the time, and it starts with us. Time to stand up for ourselves and create the future we want for ourselves and our families, starting with the workplace. And democracy only works if we stand up together.

So join us today! It starts by signing our confidential, no-obligation petition (available for download on this website, on union boards throughout the city, or contact us and we’ll mail one to you along with a postage-paid return envelope). Signing truly obligates you to nothing! After a successful election, you will receive all the benefits and protections of a contract whether you decide to join our union and pay dues or not – it’s entirely up to you! In other words, you have nothing to lose and a whole LOT TO GAIN (including a lot more money over your career with the City – enough to add years to your retirement in fact)!

Hey Coordinators, Let’s Unite!

Are you an unrepresented City of Portland employee who is not currently managing anyone and doesn’t have first-hand knowledge of the City’s union contract bargaining positions? If so, you’re eligible (regardless of what others may tell you!). Coordinator I-IIIs, Administrative Specialist I-IIIs, Capital Project Manager IIIs, Analyst I-IIIs, Financial Analyst I-IIIs and many others…all eligible! And, gulp, we are the last 10% of city staff who are not benefiting from contract protections. Why?
