“I’m just one little old lady who said ‘hey, this isn’t right.’”
Portland Federation of School Professionals', local 111, organizing campaign reached an all-time high last week when their new member numbers hit one hundred and eleven - or 111! The same as their Local's number!
They quickly passed that goal, and are now at 118!
They have never had so many new members. All of this has been accomplished in just six months. Their hard work is certainly paying off.
Congratulations, Portland Federation of School Professionals!
Take the day and enjoy this fantastic opportunity to learn more about Oregon AFL-CIO’s collaborative approach to building worker power, discuss best practices, and learn new innovative strategies for successful campaigns.
