Key Endorsement UpdateS 6/11/19

June 11, 2019

Oregon Labor Family:

We launched our campaign for President and Secretary-Treasurer of the Oregon AFL-CIO exactly two months ago, and we have been blown away by the feedback we’ve received from our Oregon Labor family. First of all, from the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU. Thank you for your confidence in our leadership, for your excitement for the future of our Movement, and for your continued passion for the fight for a fair and just economy that works for ALL Oregon workers and not just the wealthy and well-connected.

After launching on April 11 with endorsements from about 30 affiliate unions, we are so humbled to announce that we have now received endorsements for our ticket from 50 affiliate unions and councils representing nearly 80% of all union members in the Federation. Again, THANK YOU!

We are now gearing up for a busy summer of travelling our great state. We’re excited to meet with every Central Labor Chapter and Council, Building Trades Council, and local union in all corners of the state to learn how to better support our affiliates, no matter how big or small and regardless of geography, in the fights to build power for your members.

If you haven’t had a chance to learn more about our campaign and vision for the future, check out our website at and Facebook page here.

As we prepare to lead, we are also very interested in hearing your specific and thoughtful feedback about how to further improve and strengthen the Oregon AFL-CIO in the years to come. Please take a few minutes to fill out our Affiliate Survey here to help us better understand how we can support your union and members in the fights ahead.

Don’t ever hesitate to reach out directly with any questions or feedback, and we look forward to seeing you soon on the campaign trail.

In solidarity,

Graham & Christy
