Tough economic times call for more creativity and collaboration on both sides of the negotitions table. During the November 10 seminar, Becky Steward with AFSCME and Blaise Lamphier with Multnomah County will share lessons learned from the trenches. Becky was president of AFSCME Local 88 at Multnomah County during the start of the economic downturn.  During that time the Union and the County found ways to work together to save over 100 jobs that would have otherwise been eliminated.
