(Portland, OR) -- Portland workers took to the picket lines over Labor Day weekend to demand better pay and working conditions. Picketers included workers from New Seasons Market and Powell's Books. A one-day strike began yesterday, shutting down the bookstore, and focused on expressing solidarity with transgender workers. Some of the groups picketing downtown over the weekend on Saturday are also members of independent unions. One of those involved in the protests was the New Seasons Labor Union.
