Through our partnerships with other unions and labor councils, we’re able to offer additional benefits to our members.
Washington State Labor Council
The WSLC is widely thought of as one of the best and most proactive Labor Councils in the nation. The WSLC has an effective legislative advocacy program to help build support for PROTEC17 legislative priorities, and it has played a leading role in winning model policies that benefit ALL workers — from our indexed minimum wage, to paid sick leave, paid family and medical leave, and overtime pay protections. Being a part of the WSLC makes PROTECT17 stronger for the same reason we are all union members in the first place — there is strength in our unity. The WSLC also offers direct benefits for affiliates and their members, including: dislocated worker training, apprenticeships, workers’ compensation assistance. They also publish the award-winning online labor newspaper, The Stand.
