Why Join?

As a union, you and your PROTEC17 colleagues are able to use your collective voice to improve not only your workplace, but your quality of life outside of work. Together, PROTEC17 members are able to negotiate contracts that guarantee strong wages, benefits, and working conditions, as well as have the opportunity to address policy issues at work and beyond — and get real results.

PROTEC17 members also have access to resources that allow them to achieve their professional and personal goals. From a professional development fund, to a scholarship program for dependents of members, to a robust discount system, the value of being in a union is immeasurable!

I wanted to get more involved in PROTEC17 because I know Unions make a difference in both big and small ways. Without PROTEC17, I believe my workplace would look much different than it does today.

Levi Denison, Case Manager, City of Seattle

Unions are essential to maintaining basic human rights and dignity of employees in the workforce. I feel it’s important to be involved in my union in order to carry on the tradition of fighting for equity and social justice.

Jennell Hicks, Program Manager, King County

My biggest reason for becoming involved in the union is to help give members strength and voice.  I would hate to think about what would happen without the strength of a united union voice.

Larry Brown, Health and Environmental Investigator, King County
