According to this Register article: Planned Parenthood forgoes block grant Organizers, however, say the decision isn’t related to complaints of using public funds for the project

Planned Parenthood Southwestern Oregon on Wednesday said it has declined to accept a $73,893 federal Community Development Block Grant allocated to the non-profit agency by the city of Springfield back in April to help with the construction of the agency’s $8.5 million health center in Glenwood.
Planned Parenthood’s decision has nothing to do with some recent vocal opposition to the grant, spokeswoman Sarah Moseley said.
Rather, accepting the grant money would have required Planned Parenthood to pay prevailing wages to all construction workers under the federal Davis–Bacon Act…
Planned Parenthood said leaders have decided to forgo the grant funding and acknowledged that paying prevailing wage would have made the project more expensive for Planned Parenthood, “but we don’t know exactly what the (cost increase) would have been.”
The Davis–Bacon Act of 1931 requires prevailing wages be paid on all federal government construction contracts, and most contracts for federally assisted construction over $2,000.
The law requires paying on-site workers no less than the locally prevailing wages and benefits paid on similar projects, and having documentation to that effect.
The CDBG grant had been earmarked to pay for a bioswale stormwater treatment system.
According to this August 9,2011 article in the Portland Mercury: Local Planned Parenthood Clinics May Unionize
Employees of the 10 Planned Parenthood Columbia Willamette (PPCW) clinics in Oregon and Southwest Washington are seriously considering joining a union. But the union and the bosses each accuse the other side of being anti-choice when it comes to letting workers decide their future. An election this Wednesday, August 10th, will determine whether 160 of the nonprofit’s reproductive healthcare workers join ranks with the local Service Employees International Union (SEIU).
Oregon has the highest per capita use of Planned Parenthood in the nation, and if Planned Parenthood forms a union costs to the “poor” women they “serve” will dramatically increase! notice how these Planned Parenthood’s are located in minority neighborhoods ( Martin Luther King BLVD ) – some people claim this is done to target the black population for abortion ( Maafa21) .
According to the paper, the drive for the union revolves around having more of a voice in the planning and administration of PPCW, as well as “gaining a livable wage for all staff” and maintaining health benefits.
“There have not been specific complaints,” says SEIU Local 49 President Meg Niemi. “People want more of a say over how the organization works and is run on a local level.”
But SEIU alleges that Planned Parenthood’s management is trying to squelch the local union before the election.
A union rep told KBOO radio that management had been holding “captive meetings” and sending out intimidating emails. Niemi also says that Planned Parenthood has been “restricting workers’ speech and rights” by asking workers to not discuss the union during work.
PPCW President David Greenberg says the management has not held any meetings specifically about the union drive and that, on the contrary, some employees have felt intimidated by receiving frequent phone calls from the union at their homes.
“Planned Parenthood has always stood for choice,” says Greenberg. “Our employees, like our patients, should be fully informed to make decision about their future.”
A review of the emails show Greenberg trying to stay within the law despite being against the union’s formation.
In multiple emails, Greenberg told employees to weigh the arguments and make up their own minds. But in an email dated July 19th, he writes that the union may be promising more than it can deliver and says, “I hope you will not vote to have SEIU represent you.”

Some argue that Planned Parenthood is a “good” organization despite the fact that they were founded by a RACIST KLAN speaker who was so connected with the Eugenics Movement that many of her Planned Parenthood board members were Eugenics members as well. Eugenics is the movement that forcefully sterilized thousands of Blacks in the US and Planned Parenthood’s founder, Margaret Sanger agreed with that ideology.
