Local 872

This is the official website for Washington Federation of State Employees Local 872. Our members work at the Washington State Department of Ecology in the Lacey Ecology Building and at the Thurston Conservation District in Tumwater.

When a harsh, disruptive lighting change gave employees watery eyes and headaches, WFSE Local 872 members took action.

Surrounded by friends and colleagues, Pat Bailey was awarded the Laurie Merta Steward of the Year Award. The ceremony took place June 1st at the Rise Up conference.

Despite high levels of stress on the job, many state and local workers say they highly value serving the public and their communities and feel generally satisfied with their jobs.

As union members, we're stronger together. Union membership equals fair pay, affordable healthcare, and a secure retirement.
