WFSE Local 872

Washington Federation of State Employees
Local 872

Our Local 872 union members work for the Washington State Department of Ecology in the Lacey Ecology Building or at King or Thurston Conservation Districts. We look out for one another and use our strength to push for better working conditions for all, union strong.

If you are in our bargaining unit, join us. See links below and on the green bar above to learn more.

The COVID-19 pandemic arrived at a time when our nation’s health care workers were already experiencing burnout.

Thanks to engaged WFSE members and a robust union contract, we don’t have non-merit staff providing unemployment insurance or employment services within our state. We don’t contract out.

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.
