Thursday, June 30, 9:30am - Get on the Bus!
This month we continue the fight for Good Jobs and Benefits, No Cuts on June 30th with a fun filled Day of Action. June 30th is a critical day in the Portland/Vancouver area for workers’ rights. We will support workers in several shops that have contracts expiring on this day as well as others that are currently in negotiations with many creative, exciting actions! And we say no to safety net cuts and push for job creation!

Closing Rally – 4:15pm – 36th and Hawthorne
If you can commit to the full day, here is what’s going to happen. We load up the buses at 9:30 and head out to our first worksite. We'll have fun on the bus, chanting and learning about each other's struggles with games and prizes. We'll stop for a picnic lunch after a powerful rally with SEIU State Workers. Another surprise action will push for job creation, not job destruction through "free trade" agreements. After a couple of more solidarity stops we finish with a surprise action in the heart of Southeast Portland. You must RSVP to get on the bus. http://www.jwjpdx.org/misc/portland-rising-get-on-the-bus
