Legislative & Political Action

100 percent union proudNo other workforce has more at stake in decisions made by elected officials

When people ask if our union engages in politics, we say a resounding “yes we do!” 

That’s because no workforce anywhere has more at stake in the decisions made by elected officials, who decide our wages, benefits, job security, and working conditions.

Big corporations spend millions supporting anti-union politicians who work to cut our wages and take away our bargaining rights. 

So, “yes!” We support candidates who value state employees.  If we didn’t we’d be tying our hands behind our back.

There is no workforce in the state of Washington that has more at stake in decisions made by the Legislature than state employees.

The Legislature has control over our wages, benefits, and pensions. They adopt a state budget that determines the funding level for the services we provide. And they consider countless bills every year that can have an impact on everything from our working conditions to our job security.

As individuals we are powerless, but through our union we have a voice.
