$15 Minimum Wage for Oregon campaign thanks ILWU Local 8 for ‘taking a stand for all workers’

From the 15NowPDX campaign web site:

For the last 18 months ILWU Local 8 (along with other ILWU Locals 19, 21, and 23) has been embroiled in a labor dispute that has kept Local 8 locked out of the ports for over a year. This past week that labor dispute was resolved and a new contracted was agreed upon. Today the workers of ILWU Local 8 and their fellow locals went back to work.

15 Now PDX published a statement of endorsement for ILWU Local 8 this past May, and we would like to congratulate them on their new contract. We would also like to thank Local 8 for taking the time, in the midst of their own contentious labor dispute, to take a stand for all workers in Oregon by endorsing a $15 minimum wage for our state.
