On June 12th, the Oregon House voted 33 – 24, to pass SB 454, making Oregon the 4th state to guarantee Paid Sick Days for all workers.

Jeff Anderson, WFP chair and UFCW 555 secretary, said it best: “This has been a long time in the making, and it’s a big win for the Working Families Party, for my union, and for working families across the state.”

After Governor Brown signs the bill, statewide paid sick days will go into effect January 1st, 2016.
