Gov. Kate Brown signs SB 828, the bipartisan Fair Work Week Bill

Governor Kate Brown signs SB 828, the bipartisan Fair Work Week bill that Oregon’s Working Families Party and UFCW Local 555 (via our Active Ballot Club) have worked so tirelessly for. What an amazing moment!

And just after she signed, here’s our wall of gold in a proud Union show of solidarity. As Governor Brown said, this first-in-the-nation Fair Work Week bill was done “the Oregon way,” via bipartisan support and much hard work on the ground. Congratulations to all who made this possible and to all who will benefit from these fair scheduling practices.
