Unfair / Do Not Patronize List
The Oregon AFL-CIO compiles an Unfair/Do Not Patronize List produced from requests by the AFL-CIO Central Labor Councils within the state placing employers on a statewide list. The basis for placement of an employer on the statewide "Unfair/Do Not Patronize List" is anti-labor conduct including, but not limited to, the following: failure to sign a labor agreement; commission of an unfair labor practice; violations of state or federal laws or rules; utilization of non-union labor; utilization or promotion of non-union goods or services; anti-union practices; failure to provide workers with fair and equitable wages and benefits, decent hours and working conditions.
