Purpose

On Monday, January 30th –join Laborers’ Local 483 members at the Bureau of Transportation to march to the Matt Dishman Community Center for a forum on cuts to services.

Other details
On Monday, all Portland City Bureaus will submit their budget recommendations to City Council. Nearby Legacy Emmanuel hospital workers of SEIU Local 49 will join us to speak about imminent cuts to healthcare facilities across the state. Let’s talk about the consequences of CUTS to our community!

Imagine what rainy Portland will look like with your parks’ bathrooms shut, your streets and sewers full of debris, your children left with fewer indoor recreational centers to go, and your hospitals with even less staff to provide assistance to the sick and their visitors. The workers who keep Portland clean, moving, safe, and healthy need your support to PROTECT PORTLAND’S FUTURE!

  • 3:00pm: Rally at PBOT (2929 N. Kerby)
  • 3:45pm: Refreshments at Dishman Community Center (77 NE Knot St.)
  • 4:00pm: Forum on cutbacks and layoffs with impacted City maintenance and Legacy hospital workers.

We would really love to see you there!
