Interpreters United (WFSE) is a democratic union of 1,500 interpreters who work Medicaid and Social Services appointments—the first and only union representing freelance interpreters.

Today we had a discussion with the Public Employment Relations Commission, the state agency in charge of union elections.

Let's look back to 2009. As Medicaid and social services interpreters, 38 percent of our pay went to language companies and brokers in the "Broken Brokers System."

Your right to bargain state funded health insurance benefits? Interpreters United (WFSE) won it.

As you may have seen in our Facebook post, WA Interpreters received a Deficiency Notice from the state.

2020 was a dark year for freelance interpreters like us.

Access to L&I interpreting appointments for all interpreters. That’s what Interpreters United stands for. Fairness.
