Big win for WSU-Puyallup

Big win for WSU-Puyallup members

Members of the new WFSE/AFSCME bargaining unit at Washington State University’s Puyallup Research and Extension Center today (March 7) voted unanimously to immediately come under the current, 2017-2019 union contract for WSU members.

WSU-Puyallup members Beau Porter and Ron Froemke and WFSE/AFSCME Labor Advocate Mark Hamilton yesterday (March 6) negotiated the memorandum of understanding with WSU management. The MOU brings the employees in the recently certified WSU-Puyallup Bargaining Unit 20 (Farms and Maintenance Operations) under WFSE/AFSCME’s current contract.
