The Portland delegation just returned from a successful trip to the quadrennial multi-state convention which was held in Boise, Idaho this year. The Portland Oregon Area Local submitted several resolutions to be considered and the majority were well received and were endorsed by the Oregon State Convention and Multi-State Convention delegates. Those resolutions will now go forward to the National Convention for consideration this July.
We also participated in the Stop Staples national day of action. We marched through downtown Boise and gathered on the State Capital steps. We were joined by delegates from Alaska, Idaho, Montana, and Washington to raise awareness and gather support to stop this subcontracting of postal services to the detriment of the American Public.
