OLYMPIA, Wash. – A measure in the Washington State Legislature could bring greater transparency to government contracting.

The following is adapted from remarks delivered by President Saunders at the Los Angeles County Federation of Labor’s Martin Luther King Day Breakfast on January 14, 2023.

WFSE members must come to Olympia to lobby during the 2023 Legislative Session to ensure funding for our contracts, which will benefit our communities, workplaces and families.
In a rushed vote, the Tacoma Art Museum Board refused to voluntarily recognize TAM Workers United (TAMWU), which has over 80% support among employees.

With an outpouring of support from parents, employees, legislators, city council members, students, unions and community, it is clear: We cannot back down till Everett Community College leadership completely scraps the plan to replace the ELC with a limited-service daycare.

Send a letter to EvCC President Daria Willis and the college's Board of Trustees—and make sure your neighbors, coworkers, and fellow parents join you.
