What: Solidarity Action
When: September 7, 12-1pm
Where: Sidewalks in front of the Oregon Convention Center Portland
Two days after Labor Day, join IATSE Local 28 in a lunchtime rally to stop union busting at Metro!
Instead of cherishing their specialized A/V techs who ensure everyone who attends or speaks at the Oregon Convention Center has a good experience, MERC, which runs Metro's Oregon Convention Center, is attempting to outsource these public sector, union positions.
A/V techs impress upon the many visitors to Portland's Convention Center what Portland is like, so let's be out there to demonstrate that "Portland is a Union Town!"
