Business and Labor Agree - Reject Measure 105

SEIU and Portland Business Alliance issue rare joint statement

More than 200 small and large businesses and 20 labor unions publicly announced today that they oppose Measure 105.

A joint statement was issued by Andrew Hoan, the President and CEO of the Portland Business Alliance, and Meg Niemi, president of the Service Employees International Union 49: 

Businesses and workers both oppose Measure 105 because we want to protect Oregon’s values. Oregon’s welcoming reputation makes it a place where people are eager to live, raise families, work, start businesses and innovate.

Immigrants living in Oregon are our neighbors, business owners, workers, teachers, nurses and veterans. We must protect everyone in our state from racial profiling. 

Diversity is one of our country’s strengths. It’s part of what defines us as a nation. Today’s immigrants join the long American tradition of coming here in search of a better life, and the freedom and opportunity we offer.

Let's all work together to stop Measure 105. 

Measure 105 would throw out Oregon’s anti-racial profiling law. The law has been on the books for more than 31 years.
