Oregon AFSCME is excited to announce that Joe Baessler has been appointed to serve as Oregon AFSCME’s Associate Director. Joe has been with AFSCME for over ten years, spending most of that time as our Union’s political director. His deep understanding of the interplay between politics and the union field work is a huge benefit for our organization and the union movement in Oregon.
Joe will retain the duties of Political Director but will be taking a larger role in directing union program and staff including key work groups focusing on a post Janus v. AFSCME environment.
We know our Council will continue to be served well by Joe’s dedication and leadership. Please join us in congratulating Joe!
