  • Organizing
  • Building Political Power
  • Union Basics for New Leadership
  • Grievances
  • Labor and Community Partnership with Portland Jobs with Justice

This is our first in-person event since the pandemic, and we are so looking forward to seeing everyone again! Registration for the event is $60 per participant, which includes a continental breakfast, full lunch, raffles for gift cards, and workshop materials. Registration ended Friday, April 15th

Spring Training will include a welcome message from Salem City Councilor Jackie Leung, an AFT-Oregon endorsed candidate for Oregon House District 19. The Land Acknowledgement will be presented by State Senator Deb Patterson, whom AFT-Oregon has also endorsed for her reelection in Senate District 10. 

A representative from AFT will be available to discuss the range of Member Benefits offered by AFT. There will also be representatives from community partners such as Kaiser Permanente and Bright Now! Dental
