LABOR LEADERS CONVERGE ON PORTLAND AS ATU HOSTS WESTERN CONFERENCE

LABOR LEADERS CONVERGE ON PORTLAND AS ATU HOSTS WESTERN CONFERENCE
 PORTLAND, Ore., June 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Portland's Amalgamated Transit Union (ATU), Local 757, celebrating recent labor victories and its 75th anniversary, will host a regional conference to share information and strategy with other ATU locals from western United States and Canada. The conference, expected to draw 120 labor leaders takes place at the Airport Holiday Inn.
 The conference, officially entitled the Northwest Joint Conference Board (NWJCB) Western States Conference, will begin with an executive board meeting on the morning of Thursday, June 25, and ends with the banquet celebration of Local 757's 75th anniversary on Saturday night, June 27.
 "We're expecting everyone from California to Edmonton," said Ron Heintzman, business representative of the 2,853-member local whose most recent conflict with Tri-Met received widespread attention.
 The labor leaders are expected to attend workshops on contract negotiations, media strategies, arbitration, American with Disabilities Act and representational rights.
 "We want to share what we've learned about expanding unions in a time when labor activity has been declining," Heintzman said. Local 757 has added bargaining unit and consistently won tough negotiations and labor disputes in the last five years, in a trend that is counter to most of the experience of American labor unions.
