At the end of June, I had the privilege of representing my union chapter at the state conference.
Delegates from around the state met for several days at the beautiful Red Lion Jantzen Beach in Portland. Tigard-Tualatin Chapter 51 had the best snacks :)
I was there all day Friday and Saturday, listening to and participating in important business, including elections and votes on dues increases, budget proposals and such.
A few of us got out for a short walk along the Columbia River after lunch Saturday:
It was a fascinating, though sometimes frustrating, experience.
Not everything came out the way we hoped, but the Tigard-Tualatin Chapter 51 representatives fought hard for our members.
What an experience! :)
