SEIU 503 UofO Bargaining Rally- Calling Out Corporate Greed!

June 21, 2017, 12:00pm - June 21, 2017, 1:00pm

Join SEIU 503 members at the University of Oregon for a bargaining rally on Wednesday, June 21st, from 12:00-1:00pm. We will gather at Johnson Hall where member leaders will update the group on where things are at in bargaining. Positions should not be cut, wages should not be frozen, benefits should not be taken away, and student tuition should not go up, when the Legislature has not passed revenue for the services that our communities need. We, the taxpayers, contribute 95% of the state budget. We will rally on these issues and invite each person in attendance to march with us one block away to US Bank where we will call on them to pay their fair share in corporate taxes so that the budget is not balanced on the backs of workers and students. We will be at Johnson Hall from 12:00-12:20 and then from 12:20-12:45 march/chant over to US Bank to make our voices heard. Workers deserve better. We pay taxes, why don't they? Corporations ought to pay!
