BULLETIN! WSU unit votes to join WFSE/AFSCME!

Members at WSU Rally for a fair contract.

A contract matters and that’s why another group of Washington State University workers has voted to form a union with the Washington Federation of State Employees/AFSCME and Local 1066.

Members of the 12-person WSU Waste Management Surplus Unit on the Pullman campus voted 6-2 to form a bargaining unit with WFSE/AFSCME. That would give them the benefits and protections under the contract at WSU.

Ballots were counted today (Aug. 25) at the Public Employment Relations Commission in Olympia.

The vote comes a week after dozens of WSU members turned out for a big rally – and gained movement in current negotiations for the next contract.

Congratulations to the members of our newest bargaining unit at WSU!
