The AFT-Oregon Executive Council has vacancies for TWO Vice-President at Large positions in accordance with our Constitution.  Vice-Presidents at Large act as liaisons to locals; attend EC meetings as voting officers; and work within our federation to accomplish our goals, which include developing more focused VP roles over the next two years in accordance with the Expanded Executive Council amendment we passed at convention; increasing engagement and participation opportunities for local leadership and rank-and-file membership; and improving transparency, accountability, and accessibility of our federation proceedings.

It's a "dog-eat-dog" world out there, but every worker in a labor union has the right to union representation. MORE
