Chris Henry for Oregon BOLI Commissioner
CHRIS HENRY is a 3rd generation TEAMSTER UNION truck driver running for OREGON LABOR COMMISSIONER.
I, Chris Henry, am running for Oregon State BOLI Commissioner. I pledge to work in the public interest and the common good of Oregon’s working people. I advocate for:
-Full unionization of workers
-Organization of worker-owned co-operatives
-Democratization of the workplace
-Publicly-funded education from daycare and pre-K to trade union guilds and higher education
-Universal Medicare for All Healthcare
-Strong responsible workplace safety regulations
-Restore The Commons back to the people
-Help Oregon transition to a vibrant green economy and a peace economy
YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO UNIONIZE!
CARD CHECK STATE: strengthen union labor and the middle class by making Oregon the nation’s first Card Check State. It’s a person’s First Amendment Right to sign a union card (Your Right To Freely Assemble). Make Oregon a Card-Check State to bring back a thriving Unionized Middle Class!
Oregon is a dumping ground for dirty diesel trucks. We need particulate filters to drastically mitigate harmful exhaust emissions. We need a shift over to 100% electric commercial trucks and truck trikes for local and long-distance logistical solutions. The freight industry should become a publicly owned utility
The working poor and homeless in this country are the canaries in Capitalism's coal mine of greed, exploitation, and profit for profit’s sake on the backs of the working class. Across the country, workers are waking up to our collective power. Poverty wages and worker exploitation won’t be accepted any longer. #UnionsForAll #FightFor15
I will advocate for workers to raise wages and improve working conditions for the marginalized, working poor, and families.
