Welcoming CWA Local 7901

Welcome to Bark, CWA Local 7901!

Bark Board and CWA union membersBark’s Board of Directors has an exciting announcement. The Bark Outreach Team has joined CWA Local 7901.

If you have met the Outreach Team, you know that we have some of the best canvassers in the nation and that many have worked for Bark for over a decade.  Barkers know that our strength resides in the many, many people, like you, who are committed to protecting Mt. Hood National Forest. Members of Bark’s Outreach Team go out door-to-door every day, even in inclement weather, connecting with more than 50,000 supporters annually.  Thousands of people have written letters, attended a Bark hike, or made a phone call because of their contact with Bark’s Outreach Team. The funds they raise help keep Bark a member-driven organization. And now when you run into members of the Outreach Team, you can know that they are making at least $15/hr – a living wage –and that they have the solidarity of a strong union!

Please join us in congratulating the Outreach Team on their new status as members of the Communication Workers of America. We are proud to support staff who do such important work for the forests we all love. We are proud to be a part of the fight for fair wages and representation.
Thank you,

Lo Goldberg, Amy Harwood, Courtney Johnson, Chet Lee, Carolyn Sweeney, Sarah Wald, and Kyla Zaret
Bark Board of Directors
