Pacific Northwest Tour -Portland, OR

On Friday, Nov 21 we attended the celebration party for Portland PDX Sweatfree Campaign, to celebrate the first sweatfree ordinance in the Northwest! On Oct 15th, the Portland City Council meeting saw a huge victory for workers rights. Thanks to the collective effort of all sweatfree supporters who fought to make sure their tax dollars do not support sweatshops, the City of Portland supported the passage of the Portland Sweatshop Free Purchasing Policy, ensuring public employee uniforms are made under humane conditions including a ban on child labor, no forced overtime, non-poverty wages, the right to join a union and an end to discriminatory firings. For more info and to contact Elizabeth Swager, the campaign's coordinator, read the press release and the imc's article on the ordinance.
