Workers in Missouri and New Mexico have chalked important victories against anti-worker laws that would have robbed them of their voices and the right to bargain collectively.

Assistant attorneys general in Washington state have formed a union through AFSCME to gain a voice in their workplace.

Members at the University of Washington ratified a new 2019-2021 collective bargaining agreement.  Click h

It's time for UW to make the right choices!

TAKE ACTION Email GovernorWe're entering the final weeks of contract negotiations when real raises will be won or lost.

This is it — the most critical period in negotiations focused on pay raises for our next union c

The coalition of unions spent the day making the cases for our member most behind the local market.

These raises would be in addition to across-the-board raises put forward at our last session.

The coalition unions FACED A TOUGH GO ON August 20

— Coalition Unions include WFSE 1488 and 3488, and SEIU 925 with support from SEIU 1199 NW — who are not bargaining right now.

Like others around the world, I mourned the death last week of Aretha Franklin. The Queen of Soul set a new standard for enduring classic songs with both artistic and political impact, like her mega-hit “Respect,” which became an anthem for both the civil rights and women’s movements.
