Wednesday, July 24, 5-7pm: Take Action for Pay Equity – PDX

Fred Meyer pays women less than men: $3.70 per house on average. Over a career, this could equal $122,000 in lost wages. Women are twice as likely to be hired into lower-paying Schedule B jobs. Schedule A earns around 25% more per hour than Schedule B. It’s time to take action for pay equity!

Oregon Women Labor Leaders and the Oregon AFL-CIO are teaming up for a community support action in solidarity with retail workers.

On July 24, we’ll gather outside the Fred Meyer store, 100 NW 20th Place in Portland at 5:00 pm. We’ll get signatures for our petition calling on Freddies to “Fix the Gap.”


As a bonus: that night is a home game night for the Portland Thorns, so those who are interested can attend the 7:30 pm game! Email itsmyunion@ofnhp.org about tickets!

The event will take place at 1 PM at the Amphitheater east of Salmon Street Springs in Waterfront Park (SW Salmon and Naito Pkwy at the River’s edge).

The main message of the event is “No U.S. War in Iran or Venezuela,” adding that “Sanctions Kill People Too!”

Sunday, July 28, 1-3pm: Medicare for All People’s Assembly

The fight for Medicare for All is gaining momentum like never before. Our movement has won the support of nearly half the Democratic members of the House, and that number continues to grow thanks to the work of thousands of activists around the country. However, in spite of the overwhelming popularity of Medicare for All, many Congress members are still dragging their feet . . . members like Oregon’s Kurt Schrader.

This summer, we are taking advantage of Congress’s August recess to turn up the heat on Schrader. National Nurses United in coordination with HCAO-Action, DSA and iPA are inviting you a People’s Assembly on July 28th where we will ask for your help in planning a monthlong pressure campaign designed to put Schrader on notice that the people of Oregon will accept nothing less than full support of Medicare for All from our representatives.

Location: Robinwood Station, 3706 Cedaroak Dr. West Linn, OR

Friday, August 2, 6-7pm: Informational Flyering at Fred Meyer – Fix the Wage Gap

Workers at Fred Meyer, Albertsons, and Safeway grocery stores across the state of Oregon are gearing up to go on a massive strike in a struggle not only for a fair contract in general, but specifically to ensure that women at Fred Meyer are no longer pushed into lower paying wage scales than men. That. Is. Amazing.

On August 2, 2019 from 6-7pm we will be flyering in support of grocery workers who are gearing up to strike all across Oregon in a struggle for equitable pay. We will be at five Portland area Fred Meyer stores in NW, North, NE, and SE Portland, and Clackamas.

RSVPs are REQUIRED to be guaranteed entry.: http://bit.ly/HardestyEPDX

Doors open at 5:30pm, Event begins at 6pm.

Upon arriving, attendees will indicate the issue most important to them. The top 3 issues will be discussed amongst attendees in facilitated breakout conversations.

This is a solutions-oriented event series that aims to bring Portland residents together around concerns specific to their neighborhood and community. We ask you to bring your best ideas about what you want to see from Portland City Council.

“Portlanders know best what is happening in their communities and how to improve their neighborhood. Their experiences can and should inform how we develop solutions to our city’s most pressing issues,” says Commissioner Hardesty. “People deserve to engage with City Council beyond the 2-3 minutes of public testimony allowed at City Hall.”

The ideas shared during these events will be used to inform the Commissioner’s priorities and policies moving forward.

Location: 8118 SE Division St. Portland
