CORRECTIONAL OFFICER UNIFORM BILL IS SIGNED INTO LAW BY THE GOVERNOR!
Updated On: Mar 30, 2012

GREAT NEWS FROM OLYMPIA!  The correctional officer uniform bill (HB 2346) that we worked so hard to pass this legislative session was signed into law by Governor Gregoire at 11AM on Friday, March 30.  Under the new law, correctional officers' uniforms will no longer be manufactured by inmates.

Congratulations to all of you who worked tirelessly on HB 2346! This tremendous victory would not have been possible without the powerful testimony of dozens of members at legislative hearings.  Thanks also to the hundreds of Local 117 members who lobbied, emailed and called their representatives to voice their support of the bill.  Your work made all the difference! 

We should also recognize the terrific work of your Local Union's political action team in passing the bill.  Lobbyist Teresita Torres skillfully built a strong coalition of HB 2346 supporters, while Political Action Coordinator Lily Wilson-Codega mobilized members from across the State to speak out in support of the bill.  It was truly a collective effort!
