Historical NoteReturn to Top

Formed in 1985, the Pineros y Campesinos Unidos del Noroeste, commonly known and abbreviated as PCUN, is the first farmworkers union in the state of Oregon and is located in the city of Woodburn, OR. PCUN grew out of the Willamette Valley Immigration Project (WVIP), an organization that provided legal advice and representation to undocumented workers, particularly as a response to Immigration and Naturalization Services (INS) raids in the state.

The Willamette Valley Immigration Project was key to building trust in the farmworker and treeplanter communities in Oregon. The community-building they fostered over the 8-years of their existence allowed farmworkers and treeplanters the opportunity for openly discussing the formation of a union. Consequently, between 1984 and 1985, a series of strategic meetings were held among the WVIP’s staff, reforestation workers, and farmworkers to discuss the development of a labor union.

As a result of these meetings, in April of 1985 the Pineros y Campesinos Unidos del Noroeste (PCUN) was formed with 80 initial farmworkers. That same year the WVIP was dissolved, however, its staff continued to provide its immigration services through a PCUN created center called Centro de Servicios para Campesinos (Service Center for Farmworkers).

PCUN is headquartered in the city of Woodburn, Oregon. This area stretches throughout the mid-Willamette Valley, an area considered to be the center of Oregon’s agricultural industry. Currently, Woodburn has over 20,000 inhabitants, and a majority of this population are of Latino descent. In fact, Latinos account for just over 50% of the Woodburn populous, making it the largest municipality in Oregon with a Latino majority or a majority of people of color.

PCUN’s initial goal was to unite and organize treeplanters and farmworkers in order to improve their working conditions. The organization strives to empower farmworkers to understand and take action against systematic exploitation and all of its effects. To achieve this end, PCUN has been involved in a number of community and workplace organizing efforts. Some examples include the 1987-1988 assistance to 1,300 immigrants as they filed applications for amnesty under the Immigration and Reform and Control Act; the 1988 creation of the Project to Stop Pesticide Poisoning with the goal of educating farmworkers about and identifying pesticides use and exposures; the promotion of legislation to help give farmworkers collective bargaining rights; the 1991 the first ever farmworker strike in Oregon and co-founding of the Farmworker Housing Development Corporation to build and manage affordable housing in towns with farmworker presence, among many other initiatives.

PCUN actively continues its outreach and organizing efforts through the work of its Collective Bargaining Committee and its Service Center for Farmworkers. It is also part of a number of collaborative efforts with a variety of local organizations, such as the Farmworkers Housing Corporation, the Voz Hispana Causa Chavista, Mujeres Luchadoras Progresistas, Oregon’s Statewide immigrant rights coalition CAUSA, Latinos Unidos Siempre (LUS), Mano a Mano Family Center, and the Salem-Keizer Coalition for Equality, among others, brought together under the umbrella of the CAPACES Leadership Institute. CAPACES is a movement-building collaborative fostering relationships, cross-training, plus a deeper shared sense of vision and scale for Oregon’s Latino population. Since its genesis, PCUN has registered more than 5,000 members. Today, it is Oregon’s largest union for farmworkers, nursery, and reforestation workers, and Oregon’s largest Latino organization.

___________________________________

El sindicato laboral Pineros y Campesinos Unidos del Noroeste, comúnmente conocido y abreviado como PCUN, fué formado en 1985 en Woodburn, Oregon, y es el primer sindicato de trabajadores agrícolas en el estado.

PCUN inició a través de el Willamette Valley Immigration Project (WVIP), una organización que proporciona asesoramiento legal y representación a los trabajadores indocumentados, particularmente como una respuesta a las redadas hechas por la oficina de Servicios de Inmigración y Naturalización (INS) en el estado de Oregon. El trabajo realizado por el WVIP fue clave para generar confianza en las comunidades campesinas y los trabajadores de reforestación de Oregon.

Durante 8 años, el trabajo comunitario del WVIP permitió que trabajadores pudieran discutir abiertamente la formación de un sindicato. Y así, entre 1984 y 1985, después de una serie de reuniones estratégicas entre el personal del WVIP, los trabajadores de reforestación y campesinos, se formó el sindicato de los Pineros y Campesinos Unidos del Noroeste (PCUN).

PCUN fué establecido en el mes de abril de 1985 con la participación de 80 campesinos. Ese mismo año fue disuelto el WVIP, sin embargo, los servicios de inmigración que proporcionaban a la comunidad fueron transladados a el Centro de Servicios para Campesinos que ahora es parte de PCUN.

La ciudad de Woodbun, Oregon, donde se encuentran las oficinas del sindicato, esta situado en medio del Valle de Willamette, una zona que es considerada el centro de la industria agrícola de Oregon. En la actualidad, Woodburn tiene más de 20,000 habitantes, y la mayoría de esta población es de descendencia Latina. De hecho, los Latinos representan poco más del 50% del poblado de Woodburn, y por esa razón es el municipio con una mayoría de Latinos ó personas de color.

La meta inicial de PCUN fue unir y organizar a los pineros y campesinos con el fin de mejorar sus condiciónes de trabajo. La organización se esfuerza en capacitar a los trabajadores agrícolas y tomar medidas contra la explotación sistemática de trabajadores. Con ese fin, PCUN ha estado involucrado en un número de esfuerzos para ayudar a la comunidad Latina y organizar a los trabajadores.

Algunos ejemplos del trabajo que PCUN ha logrado a través de los años incluye la asistencia de 1,300 inmigrantes que presentaron solicitudes de amnistía bajo la reforma de inmigración y la ley de Control entre 1987 y 1988; la creación de un proyecto para educar a los trabajadors agrícolas sobre pesticidas; la promoción de legislación para ayudar que los trabajadores agrícolas tengan derechos para negociar un contracto laboral en forma colectiva; y la co-fundación de la corporación de desarrollo y vivienda para los trabajadores agrícolas, entre muchas otras cosas. PCUN continúa sus esfuerzos organizativos a través del comité de negociación colectiva y su centro de servicios para los trabajadores agrícolas. También a colaborado con una variedad de organizaciones locales, tales como campesinos Housing Corporation, la Voz Hispana Causa Chavista, Mujeres Luchadoras Progresistas de Oregon, coalición de derechos de inmigrantes del estado CAUSA, Latinos Unidos Siempre (LUS), Mano a Mano Family Center y la coalición de Salem-Keizer por la igualdad, entre otros. Estas organizaciones también forman parte del instituto de liderazo de PCUN que se llama CAPACES.

CAPACES es un movimiento colectivo que trata de fomentar colaboración y entrenamiento dentro de la comunidad Latina de Oregón.

Hoy en día, PCUN ha registrado a más de 5,000 miembros dentro del sindicato. PCUN es la organización más grande de trabajadores agrícolas y reforestación en el estado de Oregon, y es la organización Hispana más grande del estado.
