Medicare, Social Security, and public education are so popular and lasting because they are UNIVERSAL programs! That’s why Universal Preschool Now has so much support and such a broad coalition.
But now, another group is trying to get the Multnomah County Commissioners to put a watered-down, non-universal preschool measure on the ballot. According to UP NOW, “Nobody wants to risk having two plans on a single ballot, which is why we are urging the commissioners to affirm the one that has already been approved by voters (that’s you!) to go to the ballot.”
1. Voluntarily recognize USE, on acceptable terms, as the unanimous voice of CSE staff, and a bargaining unit of CWA Local 7901. 2. Reverse the retaliatory suspension of a Union member. 3. Immediately terminate the relationship with pernicious union-busting firm, Bullard Law, and commit to bargaining in good faith.
“Hiring a union-busting firm is a direct contradiction of our core values as members of Oregon’s environmental justice and labor movements. We are disturbed to our core that you would engage in union-busting against environmental workers who are on the front-line of efforts to secure a Green New Deal and a sustainable economy that works for all.”
