Pineros y Campesinos Unidos del Noroeste (Northwest Treeplanters and Farmworkers United), is Oregon's union of farmworkers, nursery, and reforestation workers, and Oregon's largest Latino organization. PCUN's fundamental goal is to empower farmworkers to understand and take action against systematic exploitation and all of its effects. To achieve this end, PCUN is involved in community and workplace organizing on many different levels. Founded in 1985 by 80 farmworkers, PCUN has since grown to include more than 5,000 registered members, 98% of which are Mexican and Central American immigrants, and to encompass a wide variety of organizing projects.

PCUN's office is located in Woodburn, a town of just over 20,000 located in the mid-Willamette Valley, the center of Oregon's agricultural industry. Woodburn, which evolved during the 1960s into a service and cultural center for the Valley's Mexican community, currently has a majority Latino population of just over 50%.

Oregon's farmworkers:

The fruit and vegetable growers of the Willamette Valley have depended heavily on Mexican labor since the 1940s. Reforestation and plant nurseries emerged in the 1970s as major winter occupations, enabling thousands of area farmworkers to remain in Oregon year-round.

Employees in these areas generally work long hours for low wages, with no overtime pay, paid breaks, seniority, job security, or other benefits. Seasonal workers are often housed in squalid labor camps owned and operated by growers or labor contractors. They are exposed to a myriad of chemicals and pesticides sprayed on crops and often lack the proper protective gear and training to apply pesticides. They also lack the right to collective bargaining, which is guaranteed to all other industries under the National Labor Relations Act.
