Who are PPS Workers? We are Nutrition Services and Custodial workers of Portland Public Schools. We are people who put food on plates, and wipe surfaces clean every day to ensure that our schools are safe and healthy.
What do we want? In 2023, we are bargaining a new contract that covers wages, benefits, and workplace conditions like safety, and more. We demand to be shown the respect we deserve for the essential services we provide.
