Who are State Workers? We are over 22,000 workers, joined together in union to make Oregon a better place to live and work. We are DHS workers who provide direct services to over one million Oregonians each year, ODOT workers who put in the long hours to ensure safe roads and infrastructure, Parks workers who keep our state parks beautiful and accessible, and much more.

Our Priorities:

  • Economic justice: We deserve wages that keep pace with inflation. No one who works for the state should be living in poverty.
  • Equitable & safe workplaces: No one should face discrimination at work and we should all have safe workplaces.
  • Sustainable workloads: We shouldn’t have to choose between our jobs and caring for ourselves and our families.
  • A strong union: We can only win when we join together as workers in a strong union.
