On Tuesday, October 3, City of Tacoma workers, who are members of Teamsters 117 and IBEW 483 along with their community supporters, will join together in a We Run This City rally on the steps of City Hall at 4:30 p.m. to demand that the City negotiate an equitable contract with provisions to ensure that wages that keep up with the cost of living.
City workers have been in negotiations with the City of Tacoma for nearly a year. The City continues to make anemic wage proposals that are significantly below inflation, and significantly below what the City has offered other unionized employees.
Workers at the City of Tacoma provide essential services to its residents. They repair the city’s roads, clean up its parks, keep its streets safe, and operate its libraries, but the city continues to shut them down with no respect for their labor.
