From Portland Jobs with Justice: IATSE Local 28 members have worked Trailblazers games since the Rose Quarter opened in 1995, and even before that when they played at Memorial Coliseum. They run sound boards, lighting, scoreboards, time clocks, and other technical equipment, necessary positions for all live games. While the Blazers games have returned, workers are being left out in the cold, as management has unfairly replaced union crews with non-union workers!
Join IATSE Local 28 in solidarity rallies during all Blazers and Winterhawks home games demanding reinstatement of their union work! Check out the recent article on their struggle!
Upcoming bannering: Friday, April 30
Gather from 2:30-5pm nearby the Moda Center (on N Interstate between NE Multnomah and N Drexler Dr) or drive by and honk in support!
