There’s a new union campaign in town at Portland State University.
On Monday, Feb. 1, there was a lively march to the university administration building, where workers presented a demand letter to the university president.
After reading out testimony and a list of demands, workers informed the president that they expect his signature on their letter of agreement by February 15. The president tried to engage workers in a dialogue, but everyone held their ground saying there was nothing to talk about until after the university recognizes and begins bargaining with the union. Chanting, “We’ll be back!”, the workers left the building in unison.
Be sure to stay tuned for more actions and rallies to support these workers!
