To ensure we're ready to negotiate and vote on our contract as soon as we win the election, we need as many L&I interpreters as possible to sign on as official union members of Interpreters Uni

L&I interpreters want a REAL union. 600+ of us have now stated that loud and clear. We need to have an election, not more delays.

Interpreters United (WFSE) members lobbied elected officials, made phone calls, and testified in the Legislature.

By forming a union with Interpreters United (WFSE), L&I interpreters will have a union built by, run by and for L&I interpreters.
