Who We Are

Founded in 1979, the Oregon Federation of Nurses and Health Professionals (OFNHP), AFT Local 5017 is a union of more than 6,000 nurses and health professionals in Oregon and Southwest Washington. We know that when healthcare workers are united across job classifications and disciplines, we become a more powerful voice for our patients, our community, and ourselves. 
Through our union, we can achieve together what we can’t do alone­–better wages, affordable health care, a secure retirement, and safer workplaces. We have the power to improve our lives at work, protect our patients, and lift up our community.
