AFT Local 111 changes name, elects president


Several changes have taken place over the past several months at Portland Federation of Teachers and Classified Employees Local 111.

For one, the union changed its name to Portland Federation of School Professionals Local 111. The local once represented both teachers and classified employees at Portland Public Schools, but that changed with the formation of the Portland Association of Teachers. The last teacher member retired in 2008, so the union decided to change its name to better reflect its membership.

Secondly, Belinda Reagan was elected president of the 1,400-member local. She has been serving as interim president since March 2010.
