In modern America, longer work hours, less vacation and less pay for higher productivity bringing host of stress related illnesses is a daily reality. It is the union that brings democracy back to the workplace and gives some of the control back to the workers.
No court can take away our ability to stand together for fair pay, better benefits, and safe working conditions. The court may decide against us in the Janus case, but as Teamsters, we decide how strong our union will be.
Negotiations between our union team and the State continued this week over our 2019-2012 DOC contract. The meetings took place at our Teamsters Union hall in Tukwila on Wednesday, May 23 and Thursday, May 24.
