Lunchtime Rally For Recognition
Jul 30, 2012 12:00 PM
On June 19th, Oregon Metro was asked by Laborers 483 to voluntarily recognize the seasonal maintenance workers as Union members. This request was backed up by the majority of seasonals declaring their support for joining the Union by way of signing representation cards.
Metro informed the Union that they cannot make a decision on this matter till the end of July. It is likely that without community support Metro will say no. All these workers need is a mere sentence of recognition from Metro Council President Tom Hughes and Chief Operating Officer Martha Bennett.
In anticipation of having 100 letters to deliver to Oregon Metro, we will be having a rally to celebrate the struggle for Union Recognition.
