Nutrition Workers - Portland Public Schools
Nutrition workers are very happy with their new contract.
The new contract melts the wage freeze that's been in
place for the last two years. In addition to a wage hike,
workers were able to reduce out-of-pocket health costs in
the new agreement. For some workers, the health care costs
will mean 100's of dollars of reduced monthly expenses.
Now represented by SEIU 503, this former SEIU 140
shop signed a 1-year contract. Organizers and shop
leaders spent a lot of time over the last year on internal
organizing and will continue to do so over the next year.
Musicians' Victory - The opera musicians recently set-
tled their contract. Musicians were successful in holding
the line on job security and retaining all bargaining unit
work. The settlement also strengthened solidarity and sta-
bility between the opera musicians and other Portland area
major orchestras.
Teachers Ratify Contract - 10/13/04 Portland teachers
ratified a two year contract that includes a salary increase
and a requirement that teachers pick up a portion of their
health insurance premium...For the entire article, go to

Victory - One Main Place Goes Union - 9/28/04 Until
June of this year, One Main Place was cleaned by union
janitors. But in June, the owner of this downtown building
got rid of their contractor and went non-union. In doing
so, he undercut union won benefits for all downtown jan-
itors.
In response, janitors launched a campaign to win back the
union. As part of that campaign, participants in the Justice
for Janitors Day action marched through the building and
created quite a stir. JwJ pledgers joined other janitors at
Jobs with Justice Action at One Main Place.
