WA legislature fully funds 2019-21 state employee contract

At midnight on April 28, the Washington State Legislature adjourned on-time for the first time in a decade with an Operating Budget that fully funds PROTEC17’s 2019-2021 state employee contract. This means that the contract your bargaining team negotiated last year will be implemented on July 1, 2019, as planned.

You can find a summary of the 2019-21 contract highlights HERE.

We will start ramping up for our next round of negotiations this winter, so stay tuned for updates and ways to get involved!

If you have any questions, please contact your Steward or Union Representative.

2019-21 contract ratified by membership!

The electronic ballots have been tallied, and the 2019-2021 contract with the State of Washington has been overwhelmingly ratified by the membership!

The next step will be to make sure the contract is included in the Legislature’s budget during the 2019 session.
