During 2019 political legislative agenda, our union will be working on a robust program to improve the lives of our members, their families, and our communities in SW Washington and Oregon. We’ll achieve this by working in coalition to pass legislation that protects renters and addresses housing stability; holds healthcare providers accountable to providing quality, affordable healthcare; increases fairness and opportunity for immigrant families; supports our goals to increase industry strength in healthcare and property services; and invests in our future.

We will unite and work in coalition with allies, community partners, and elected officials to make Washington and Oregon a region where all are welcome.

Oregon:

  • Stable Homes for Oregon Families – SB 608
  • Accountable and affordable healthcare
  • Fairness and opportunity for immigrant families
  • Paid family medical leave
  • Funding schools and public services

Washington:

  • Improve meal and rest periods for healthcare workers
  • Protections for renters and investments in affordable housing
  • Improve prevailing wage
  • Create statewide registry and training program for property services
