A union guide to Oregon’s November general election


If a candidate is listed in bold below, they’re backed by at least one labor organization. To keep a long list as short as possible, union-endorsed candidates who are running unopposed or against only token opposition are not listed.

You’ll see that unions sometimes didn’t agree: In some winner-take-all races, more than one candidate got support from at least one union.

Following each name is a list of union endorsers and a link to the campaign web site, if they have one. [We list all acronyms here and in a legend at the bottom.]

DON’T FORGET: Ballots must be received (not postmarked) by Nov. 6!

Kate Brown, a Democrat, has been Oregon’s governor since John Kitzhaber resigned in February 2015. In 2015, Brown signed legislation giving Oregon workers the right to paid sick leave. In 2016, as unions considered two competing ballot measure proposals to raise the minimum wage, Brown met with business and labor leaders and crafted a compromise – raising the wage at different rates in different parts of the state. By 2022, the resulting legislation will raise wages to $14.75 in the Portland area, $13.50 in the Willamette Valley and the North Coast, and $12.50 in rural Eastern Oregon. In 2017, Brown signed a $5.3 billion transportation funding package and laws cracking down on abusive scheduling practices by employers, barring local jurisdictions from passing antiunion “right-to-work” ordinances, and taxing health care providers to pay for the Oregon Health Plan. Her Republican opponent, state representative Knute Buehler, voted against all those laws. He also says he won’t sign any spending bills until the Legislature sends him a bill “reforming” Oregon’s PERS public pension system. He did not seek union endorsement.

Ballot measures

Measure 102

SUPPORT This constitutional amendment would make public investments in affordable go farther by allowing local governments to partner with non-profit and private housing providers when spending public bond proceeds. Oregon legislators voted almost unanimously to refer this constitutional amendment to voters. AFL-CIO, OBTC, AFSCME 88, 189, 328, AFT, ATU, IBEW 48, IAFF 43, OEA, OSEA, PAT, SEIU 49, 503, UBC, UFCW, WFP YesForAffordableHousing.com

Measure 103

OPPOSE This measure, bankrolled by giant grocery chains, would amend the Oregon Constitution to bar any taxes on food or soda — and exempt the grocery industry from any future increases in the state’s minimum corporate income tax. Bear in mind there is no current tax on groceries, and no one is proposing one. Grocery union UFCW is not in favor; in fact, defeating Measure 103 is one of its top priorities this year.  AFL-CIO, AAUP, AFSCME, AFT, ATU, OEA, ONA, OSEA, SEIU 49, 503, WFP NoOn103.org

Measure 104

OPPOSE This constitutional amendment is the latest in a long line of efforts to undermine majority rule and hamstring the ability of Oregon’s elected representatives to fund schools and public services. A 1996 ballot measure (which itself passed by 55 percent in a low-turnout primary) currently requires a 60 percent (three-fifths) supermajority vote in the legislature to raise taxes of any sort. Measure 104 would make it so that lawmakers would also need that same hard-to-obtain three-fifths supermajority to repeal or reform tax breaks. If it passes, it will make it harder for the legislature to reverse special interest tax loopholes that were a bad idea to begin with.  AFL-CIO, AAUP, AFSCME, AFT, ATU, IAFF, OEA, ONA, OSEA, SEIU 49, 503, WFP NoOn104.org

Measure 105

OPPOSE This measure would repeal a 1987 state law that bars state and local law enforcement agencies from apprehending people SOLELY on suspicion that they may have violated federal immigration law. Back then, the law passed overwhelmingly, with support from both parties, in response to racial profiling by police, like a case in which Polk County sheriffs demanded that a U.S. citizen of Mexican descent prove he was in the United States legally. Under the law, local police are still arresting immigrants if they commit crimes. But Oregonians can’t be stopped, detained or interrogated just because someone thinks they might be an undocumented immigrant.

Measure 106

OPPOSE This constitutional amendment prohibits public funds from being spent on abortions in Oregon, except when medically necessary or required by federal law. It would impact two groups of Oregonians in particular: the 271,833 low-income women of reproductive age who are enrolled in the Medicaid-funded Oregon Health Plan, and the 77,344 women of reproductive age who get insurance through the Public Employees’ Benefit Board (PEBB) and Oregon Educators Benefits Board (OEBB). For the majority of PEBB and OEBB enrollees who are union members, those are benefits they bargained for.  AFL-CIO, AFSCME, AFT, ATU, IAFF, ONA, OSEA, PAT, SEIU 49, 503, UFCW, WFP NoCutsToCare.com
