WSU (WFSE)

9/6/18

RALLY at Western State Hospital (WSH) FRI Sep7 from 1-3pm.

No politician running for office today would openly advocate for more wealth inequality in our country, where the richest 1 percent of the population owns 40 percent of the wealth. Even candidate Donald Trump in 2016 promised to stand up for the “forgotten men and women of our country,” who feel betrayed by a rigged economic system that benefits a small minority at their expense. Yet every single day, President Trump and congressional leaders seem determined to do more to increase wealth inequality than to alleviate it; do more for corporations and the wealthy than for single parents working two or three jobs to make ends meet.

Our WFSE Local 1066 elected bargaining team met on 8/21 to continue the work of achieving a contract that reflects our values.

Like others around the world, I mourned the death last week of Aretha Franklin.

Our elected bargaining team met with management July 17-19 and again on July 24 to continue the work of negotiating our next contract. Our team achieved gains related to leave use

I’m from South Dakota. It’s a right to work state. I'd like to share my experience and why I'm #UnionStrong.

It's time to close the gap for state employees. We need contracts that include real raises, affordable healthcare, and that improve our communities and ensure a stable workforce.

As union members, we're stronger together. Union membership equals fair pay, affordable healthcare, and a secure retirement.
