The member-elected State bargaining team is meeting with management this week, and their top economic priorities moving forward will be a proposal on hazard pay for essential workers and cost of living adjustments (COLAs) for everyone. We are very close to finalizing a new contract, so now is the time to put pressure on management to give us the compensation we deserve!

You can help us win these proposals by calling Governor Kate Brown and asking her to tell State Agencies to support our proposals!

Governor Brown (503) 378-4582.


Hello. My name is [Your name] and I am a member of SEIU 503. I’m calling to ask that you support hazard pay and cost of living raises for state employees. Oregon’s state employees masked up, did their jobs, and kept our economy running through a pandemic, wildfires and other crises of 2020. We have done little more than pay lip service to the risks that workers took to do essential jobs. Now you have an opportunity to make that right at the bargaining table. Please support our union and settle a contract with hazard pay and cost of living raises for Oregon’s frontline workers.
