Tigard, Oregon — Dan Clay, President of the United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) Union, Local 555, issued the following statement regarding the on the passage of Senate Bill 828 (Fair Work Week):
“All of us deserve more than a couple days’ notice of our work schedule. How else can you plan childcare? Go to school? Schedule medical appointments? Hold down a second job? Without at least some notice of upcoming schedules, workers can’t live their lives or adequately plan for their families. Oregon’s Fair Work Week bill is a commonsense solution to an everyday problem facing workers in every town, city, and state across America.”
