Local 117 hosts events throughout the year designed to promote union solidarity, workers' rights, and community action. For years, Local 117 has organized steward trainings, educational seminars, and an annual blood drive. You can access the DOC CALENDAR here.
Our Local 117 Executive Board meets on a monthly basis to review Local Union finances and to discuss the direction of the organization.
If you would like more information about the work of our E-Board, contact Jennifer Shaw at 206-441-4860.
On December 20, hundreds of Local 117 members will gather at the union hall in Tukwila for solidarity and our annual raffle drawing.
Dozens of prizes are awarded each year, including electronics, power tools, bottles of wine, gift cards, televisions sets, and best of all, NUTS! All of the gifts are purchased from companies with whom Local 117 has a bargaining relationship.
If you work graveyard and are unable to attend the meeting, be sure to stop by the hall during the day on Thursday for some cookies and holiday cheer and to put your name in for the raffle.
All members are welcome!
