When did WA State correctional employees gain interest arbitration rights?

Answer

Washington State correctional employees gained interest arbitration rights for the term of their current collective bargaining agreement when Governor Inslee agreed to extend a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) originally signed in March of 2013. Through the current contract negotiations process, our Union bargaining committee was able to successfully negotiate interest arbitration rights into our 2017-2019 contract.
