INTEREST ARBITRATION BILL HB1490 EXEC'ED OUT OF HOUSE LABOR & WORKFORCE DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE
Updated On: Mar 07, 2013

VIEW A COMPLETE LIST OF ALL LEGISLATORS ON THE HOUSE APPROPRIATIONS COMMITTEE HERE!

We have some good news to report out of Olympia!  On February 14, our interest arbitration bill for correctional employees (HB1490) passed out of the House Labor & Workforce Development Committee on a vote of 5-4.  

Some of the legislators on the committee wanted to reduce the bill in scope to encompass only safety issues, but Committee Chair Mike Sells pushed the bill through unchanged because he understood that the DOC did not bargain in good faith during last negotiations.  We will need to continue to make legislators understand that only a bill that provides correctional employees with full interest arbitration rights will bring dignity, respect, and equity under the law to WA State prison workers!  

HB1490 is now on the way to the House Appropriations Committee where legislators will consider the fiscal impact of the bill.

HERE'S WHAT TO DO NEXT:

  1. CONTACT LEGISLATORS ON THE HOUSE APPROPRIATIONS COMMITTEE It is critically important that we contact all of the legislators on the House Appropriations Committee and tell them to pass interest arbitration legislation for correctional employees.  Send all legislators on the committee an email now!
  2. CONTACT YOUR REPRESENTATIVES:  Call the Legislative Hotline at 1-800-562-6000 now!

Interest arbitration will give Local 117 members at the DOC the voice they need in determining their working conditions, more leverage at the bargaining table, and respect! Take action now!
