Some Portland Oregon Area Local members, officers and stewards were attending training and conferences in Las Vegas during the tragic shooting event that occurred on October 1st, 2017. All members, officers and stewards of the Portland Oregon Area Local have checked in and are safe. Our thoughts are with all those who are impacted by this tragic event.
It is with great sadness that we must notify our Members that Marie Clark has passed away. Marie has been an asset and important part of our union family for many decades. Marie was the Local office secretary for years and a driving force in the local auxiliary.
Service/Mass will be held at Holy Redeemer Catholic Church on September 13 at 11:00 am.
