State employees want fair contracts that end the growing trend of public servants driven out of public service by non-competitive pay.

Washington state’s recent salary survey showed that 99 percent of state employees are paid below market rate, an alarming trend because the State of Washington is the largest employer — public or private — in the state. The state employees call for a fair contract that includes competitive pay, safe staffing and workload relief.

The competitive pay gap has caused a revolving-door crisis where it’s getting harder and harder to attract and keep state employees. That crisis threatens the services provided by employees of the state, including: law enforcement; safe and clean college campuses; direct care for veterans, disabled, mentally ill and at-risk children and adults; keeping our roads safe and maintaining our highway infrastructure; safeguarding health and safety in the workplace and public utilities like drinking water; and protecting our natural resources.

Washington residents deserve and expect quality services. YOU can urge the governor to support meaningful raises for state employees, ensure no more out-of-pocket costs on health insurance, and provide immediate relief of short staffing and workloads. Your voice urging our state to invest in Washington will make a difference.

We have low wages and unreasonable management we deal with dailey all to provide public services to the citizen’s of washington.please give us our deserved raise.

  3. I’m not a union member, but support this effort. We need to make full union membership mandatory for all State employees (including WMS); no “agency fee payers”. The union should be a participant in the hiring of all State employees.
