Please join me in welcoming a group of 14 dentists, who work at the Washington State Department of Corrections, to Teamsters Local 117!

DOC dentists are skilled professionals who provide essential care to over 16,000 offenders statewide. 

The dentists are joining Local 117 after an overwhelming majority voted to join the Union in a recent election.  We anticipate that the Public Employees Relations Commission (PERC) will certify the election in the coming days.

In the meantime, please welcome this new group to your union!  If you work at the DOC, be sure to say hello, congratulate them, and thank them for their service.
