Oregon AFSCME union represents some 25,000 workers in Oregon. Most are public employees who work for either the State of Oregon or an Oregon city, county or special district. OR AFSCME also represents private sector employees; most of which are employed by non-profit agencies that provide some form of public service. Our members play vital roles in protecting public resources while making Oregon a better state.
 
OR AFSCME recognizes our members and their families are affected by various social issues beyond the workplace, therefore, we are committed to engage on matters that impact all working families in Oregon. Through forging alliances with other labor organizations, workers and community groups who share similar values and visions, we can build a stronger and more efficient movement to improve the quality of life for all community members. Therefore, we have prioritized bringing community partners and other unions to build a Fair Shot for All coalition that creates a strong voice for all working families.
 
This past legislative session, our union committed to advance Fair Shot's legislative agenda that benefits all working people in Oregon. AFSCME was particularly instrumental in advancing the passage of paid sick days legislation and the retirement security bill. We were also supportive of the ban-the-box and anti-profiling measures.  These policy priorities strengthen our state by providing all working families a fair shot to succeed.
