Video Description

9to5: The Story of a Movement

When Dolly Parton sang “9 to 5,” she was singing about a real movement that started with a group of secretaries in the early 1970s. Their goals were simple—better pay, more advancement opportunities and an end to sexual harassment—but as seen in 9to5: The Story of a Movement, their fight that inspired a hit would change the American workplace forever.

  • Maureen Goldberg, Office & Professional Employees (OPEIU) Local 11

    Proudly I’ve been a member of Local 11 since 1997 and served many years as Shop Steward, Executive Board member and local Union President; and applied and accepted an internship as a Union Representative in July of the 2007 calendar year out of the Clark County bargaining unit. In October 2007 I transitioned into a permanent Union Representative role; which I worked for the local negotiating contracts and dealing with member issues and then upon Mike Richards announcing his retirement in 2018; and following an extensive interview process, I was selected by the Local 11 Executive Board to serve as the Interim Executive Secretary-Treasurer. Then in March 2019 the membership elected me into the Executive Secretary-Treasurer role permanently. Having women in leadership roles is important to me and I feel has made a great connection and difference with the members we represent and has opened up a need and vision of the membership.

  • Sarah Kowaleski, Portland Jobs with Justice

    Sarah is the Coalition Organizer for Portland Jobs with Justice where she works with essential workers to uplift health, safety, and dignity at work, and builds coalitions to confront entwined human rights struggles, from police violence to climate chaos. Sarah Kowaleski, the daughter of a machinist and hospital worker, was fabricated and assembled in New Britain, CT, known back home as the "Hardware City Capital of the World." As an undergraduate at the University of Connecticut, she was appalled by the extreme exploitation of global garment workers, largely Black and Brown women her age, who produced her college apparel. In solidarity, Sarah founded a student group to pressure the university to hold its licensees, major brands such as Nike, accountable to higher standards. As a recession-era graduate, the experience of being a low-wage and misclassified admin in public sector services galvanized her and an organizing committee of frontline women workers to fight back and win fair wages, benefits, and union representation.
