ES Fair Pay job action — Postcards and backgrounds

WFSE members from around the state are participating in job actions to support a classification raise for our state's Environmental Specialists, also called Eses. If you are a Local 872 member, we are asking you to help now.

As we environmental workers of all stripes know. people working as "Environmental Specialists" protect, preserve, and enhance the environment for current and future generations.They forge innovative partnerships across the state to sustain healthy land, air, and water in harmony with a strong economy. We have that strong economy here in Washington. However, expenses such as food and housing are climbing, We need the people who do this important work, and the current pay range is well under the pay for similarly skilled jobs elsewhere. We need FAIR PAY now for Environmental Specialists!

WFSE members and staff are bargaining with Washington State NOW for the 2023- 2025 Collective Bargaining Agreement, our next contract. Raises for Environmental Specialists must be on the table, and they will be, if we act now.

Share your voice on ES Fair Pay. If you received an envelope with a "My Why for E$ Fair Pay" postcard in the mail, please fill out both sides of the postcard and drop it back in a post box, soon. Tell your colleagues to send in their cards, too.

We will deliver these postcards in bulk to make sure our message is heard loud and clear by state leaders — fund raises for Environmental Specialists!

You can also show your solidarity by using our E$ Fair Pay virtual background in your online meetings!
