Dear Colleague,
Congratulations on your new job and welcome to Washington Federation
of State Employees, AFSCME Council 28, the most powerful and demo-
cratic union in Washington State.
We represent state employees who work in General Government, Higher
Education; and public service groups like Independent Provider Inter-
preters and American Behavioral Health Systems and American Friends
Service Committee.
As you get settled in your new job, I am certain you will have numerous
questions. This booklet will provide some initial information to get you
Our contracts contain important information about basic working condi-
tions, workers rights and responsibilities. Your employer will provide you
with a copy; keep it handy. You can also download one from our website
at http://www.wfse.org/our-contracts/
Together we all make up the union. We elect representatives to policy
committees to represent worker issues and we elect member representa-
tives to negotiate our contracts, that may include wages, cost-of-living-ad-
justments (COLA), step increases, health care coverage, pension coverage,
vacation time, holiday options and more.
In addition, we advocate for safe and respectful work environments.
To join and become a member, complete the enclosed membership card.
There is a big difference between choosing to be a full member and the
non-member fee payer. If you support fair wages and strong benefts, we
encourage you to become a full member. Being a member entitles you to
voting rights during all union elections, the right to participate in union
activities, surveys, functions and to members-only union benefts.
WFSE/AFSCME members wrote the Vision, Mission and Core Values
statement on the left page. Everything we do and all actions we take are
directly related to them. Together we make a difference.
We are the union and together we strengthen our voice.
I am honored to serve you as your president. I hope this booklet helps you
begin your journey as a member of WFSE/AFSCME.

Public service makes Washington better
WASHINGTON FEDERATION OF STATE EMPLOYEES (WFSE) www.wfse.org Page 5 Page 4 AFSCME Council 28 Public Service Makes Washington Better
We are WFSE/AFSCME Council 28 AFL-CIO
By joining together, working people gain strength in numbers and create a
voice at work and in our communities about matters we care about.
Working together, we can negotiate a contract with our employer that may
include better pay; protects our health insurance and retirement benefts; and
creates a fair and safe workplace with worker-friendly policies like schedule
fexibility, commute trip reduction and leave to care for family members.
No matter what type of job workers are in, strong unions
allow workers to speak out for fairness for all working
people in their communities and create better standards
and a strong middle class across the country.
AFSCME, the AFL-CIO and all unions envision a future in which work
and all people who work are valued, respected and rewarded.
We achieve that frst through traditional representation and bargaining for
strong contracts but then we go beyond that by participating in lobbying
and working in coalition with other organizations to achieve the same
Building a Middle Class who receive a fair helping of decency.
We accomplish this by building a broad coalition to advance a worker-
friendly political and economic agenda.
About Unions
Unions build a strong
middle class
This is a movement that matters to our
states economy
When you join this union, you
become part of the solution we hope
closes the gap between the rich and
the middle class in the United States
and in our communities here in
Simply, the state of Washington is
this states largest employer. So if
state employees and public service
sector employees cant make a liv-
ing wage, they cant buy the goods
and services that drive the economy.
Washingtons economy then suffers
because this large pool of workers
isnt earning enough to keep our
economy strong.
The real job creators are not CEOs
or corporations or wealthy inves-
tors, former U.S. Labor Secretary
Robert Reich says (robertreich.org).
The job creators are members of
Americas vast middle class and the
poor, whose purchases cause busi-
nesses to expand and invest.
Income inequality affects us all.
There are many reasons for this
alarming gap between the vast
Middle Class and the few very rich.
The chart (right) shows that after
World War II, the economy boomed
because 90% of Americas wage
earners those on the lower end of
the pay scale benefted the most
from income growth. But during
recent economic expansions, its
been the very few at the very top
who have captured all the income
growth. Thats a recipe for economic
The men and women of this move-
ment we call the Washington Federa-
tion of State Employees have done
much to reduce income inequality.
Thirty years ago, the unions pio-
neering comparable worth settle-
ment addressed gender-based wage
disparities. More recently, Medical
Interpreters negotiated a frst-ever
contract that boosted pay but also
saved the state millions of taxpayer
dollars. Many contracts negotiated
in 2014 (effective July 1, 2015) help
those earning less than $15 an hour.
The Community College Coalition
even won frst-time salary increases
for part-time hourly workers.
Income inequality is a national issue
that we can help solve here with
strong contracts and a commitment
to workplace rights.
This is a union committed to revers-
ing income inequality. You can help
because your voice matters.
When you join WFSE/AFSCME,
you join your voice with other mem-
bers engaged in this effort.

Workers Rights
Workers have the right to organize a union to nego-
tiate wages, hours, and other terms and conditions of
Union members have the right to bargain collec-
tively through representatives of employees own
choosing for a contract that covers wages, benefts,
hours, and other working conditions.
Union members have the right to discuss terms and
conditions of employment or union organizing with
co-workers to help solve problems and come up with
solutions that work.
Union members have the right to take action with
one or more co-workers to improve working condi-
tions by, among other means, raising work-related
complaints directly with your employer or with a
government agency, and seeking help from a union.
Union members have the right to picket (demon-
strate, rally, sign-wave, wear campaign buttons,
shirts). There are some locational restrictions. Check
with your Shop Steward.
Union members have the right to receive all the
benefts achieved by the union in negotiating em-
ployment benefts with your employer.
Represented workers have a voice

A U.S. Supreme Court decision
called Weingarten extends to
unionized workers federal rights
to union representation during a
management investigation.
The Washington Public Employment Rela-
tions Commission (PERC) is charged with
determining bargaining units* in state
government and public service positions.
The National Labor Relations Board
(NLRB) defnes private sector bargaining
If youre not sure if your position is part of
a bargaining unit, contact us at 800-562-
6002 or via email: contactus@wfse.org.
*Bargaining Unit: A bargaining unit in
labor relations is a group of employees with
a clear and identifable community of inter-
ests who are represented by a single labor
union in collective bargaining and other
dealings with management.
Weingarten Rights
If you are called into a meeting with a management representative
and you have reason to believe that disciplinary action against you
may result, you have the right to have a union representative present
during this meeting. Read the statement below to the management
representative, and contact your steward immediately:
If this discussion could in any way lead to my being disciplined or
terminated, or affect my personal working conditions, I request that
my union representative, offcer, or steward be present at the meet-
ing. Without representation, I choose not to answer any questions.
The following guidelines apply:
The employee must make a clear request for union representation
before or during the interview.
The employer must grant the request and delay questioning until
the union representative arrives and has a chance to consult pri-
vately with the employee; deny the request and end the interview
immediately; or give the employee a choice of having the inter-
view without representation or ending the interview.
If the employer denies the request for union representation and
continues to ask questions, it commits an unfair labor practice
and the employee has the right to refuse to answer. The employer
may not discipline the employee for such a refusal.
Weingarten Rights do not apply to coaching meetings, giving instruc-
tions or handing out discipline. Check with your shop steward or staff
representative if you need more information.
Union representation protects your rights

Part-time Hourly Community College
employees air issues at landmark
union-management meeting
The unions Community College Coalition Bargaining
Team never gave up its fght to support members in
part-time hourly positions.
When management rebuffed several bargaining pro-
posals last year, the union won a special union-man-
agement meeting to begin airing their issues.
Part-time hourly workers gained even more rights in
the 2015-17 Community College Coalition contract.
UW Custodian Wins
UW Local 1488 member (center) after being exoner-
ated in the Coke Zero incident, thanks to WFSE/
AFSCME Labor Advocate and Council Representa-
tive when his case elevated to arbitration from griev-
ance. The arbitrator ordered the UW to reinstate Choi
and make him whole for nearly a years worth of lost
wages. http://www.wfse.org/us-coke-zero/
Membership difference
Did you know that state employees once got their
jobs based on which political party they belonged
to? Thats right. But in 1960 WFSE/AFSCME
members mounted a campaign to ask voters to cre-
ate a CIVIL SERVICE system where employees are
hired based on what they know, not who they know.
Before collective bargaining, state employees had to
beg politicians for pay raises.
This system ofbegging not bargaining ended in 2002
with the passage of the WFSE/AFSCME-initiated full-
scope COLLECTIVE BARGAINING law that allows
state employees to negotiate pay and benefts.
Nearly 40,000 WFSE represented workers are now
covered by strong contract protections.
Did you know that long before the Civil Rights Act
of 1964 and the Memphis Strike, WFSE/AFSCME
already had a CIVIL RIGHTS committee. Today,
were on the front lines against discrimination, work-
place bullying and pay inequity.
Prior to 1985, employees who worked in job classes
historically made up of women were paid 59% of what
male-dominated classes did.
That ended in 1985 when after years of pursuing court
action, WFSE/AFSCME and the State of Washington
reached a settlement in the pioneering COMPARABLE
WORTH lawsuit that brought a half-billion dollars to
remedy gender-based wage inequity.
Union membership makes a difference www.wfse.org/history/

All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and
importance and should be undertaken with
painstaking excellence.

By joining as a union member you help to build a
strong and united voice to take a stand for public
service employees and the services we provide.
By joining together, we have power in the halls of
government and at the contract bargaining table.
Now more than ever we must take collective ac-
tion to strengthen our union and protect our future.
Building a strong union
As Washingtons most powerful advocate for public service employees, working families, and strong com-
munities, WFSE/AFSCME members speak with a proud and strong collective voice.
Union membership is key to accessing that pride and strength.
Members make important decisions, from setting priorities for contract negotiations and endorsing
legislative candidates to planning job actions and changing the way the union itself is organized.
Thats why union membership is the frst step in making the most out of union representation.
Union membership is personally empowering and gives you the opportunity to take part in the
democratic decision-making that steers our union.
Union memberships connects you to the historical and growing
movement of working people standing up for their right to negotiate
for fair wages and working conditions.
If youre not a dues-paying member, we invite you to learn more.
In 1968, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. died while defending AFSCME sanitation workers in
Memphis who were fghting for their dignity and the right to collectively bargain.

Collective Bargaining
WFSE.org > Collective Bargaining
Collective bargaining is the American way
Collective bargaining is the process
through which we negotiate con-
tracts to determine terms of employ-
ment, including pay, benefts, hours,
leave, job health and safety policies,
ways to balance work and family
and more. Collective bargaining is
one way we solve workplace prob-
The frst step to negotiating our
contracts - also called collective
bargaining agreements (CBAs) -
is identifying the rules that apply.
State Employees (RCW 41.80)
State employees negotiate under
the Personnel System Reform Act
(PSRA) of 2002. Our frst contract
went into effect on July 1, 2005
Members in General Government
and the Community College Coali-
tion negotiate with the governors
Labor Relations Division (LRS)
of OFM. Members in our four-
year Higher Education institutions
bargain with their respective admin-
Refer to RCW 41.80 (State Collective Bargaining) for
more about what can and cant be bargained
under PSRA.
Public Employees (RCW 41.56)
Some WFSE/AFSCME members
bargain under the Public Employ-
ees Collective Bargaining Act
(PECBA). This includes our Renton
Technical College, Independent
Provider Interpreters, and Higher
Education exempt employee mem-
Public employee teams may bar-
gain with LRS or directly with their
Refer RCW 41.56 (Public Employees Collective
Bargaining) for more about specifcs.
Private Sector Public Service Em-
ployees (NLRA)
WFSE/AFSCME also represents
members from the private sector
who perform public services. These
members fall under the federal Na-
tional Labor Relations Act (NLRA).
This includes American Friends
Service Committee (AFSC) and
American Behavioral Health Sys-
tems (ABHS), and Kitsap Tenant
Support Services (KTSS).
Refer toNLRBCollectiveBargaining(Section8(d) &8(b)(3).
During negotiations, the input
and support of members is key
to winning strong contracts!
Bargaining teams for each contract
are elected from and by union mem-
bers covered by that contract. Staff
assists as negotiators.
Members give the team input into
proposed changes to the contract
as well as what theyd like to keep.
Bargaining teams review the pro-
posals and produce a fnal package
of proposals that are then presented
to management as initial contract
Negotiations continue with each
side offering proposals until a tenta-
tive agreement is reached.
Watch for information about ways
you can get involved during nego-
tiations through rallies, lunch-n-
learns, unity breaks, and more.
Once a tentative agreement is
reached, the ratifcation process
begins. Members vote to accept or
reject the tentative agreement of-
fered by the bargaining team.
Ratifed agreements that require
state funding (all except our NLRB
contracts) are then forwarded to
the governors Offce of Financial
Management for funding through
the legislature.
Members are our strength
Members run WFSE/AFSCME,
electing offcers at all levels and
participating in the day-to-day
affairs of their local unions. Mem-
bers set priorities for contracts and
are the key in the unions growth
and success.
Only union members have the right
to participate in our union democracy.
Local elections determine local
offcers and local executive board
members. Elections are also held
at the local level to select delegates
and alternates to council-level
policy committees, our councils
biennial convention, and to the AF-
SCME International convention.
Council 28 Policy Committees
Policy Committee members defne
and work through issues unique to
their area of work before forward-
ing requests for action (in the form
of resolutions) to the council-level
executive board.
Our policy committees are: Correc-
tions, Employment Security, Hu-
man Services, Institutions, Higher
Education, Labor and Industries,
Miscellaneous, Natural Resources,
Public Service and Transportation.
Council-level policy committee
members also elect representatives
from their committee to the coun-
cils executive board.
Council Executive Board
The Council Executive Board is the
body that is charged with carrying
forward the resolutions approved
at the convention and conducting
the business of the membership
between conventions.
Council 28 Convention
WFSE/AFSCMEs highest govern-
ing body is the convention of the
membership held in odd-numbered
years. Locals elect union members as
delegates and alternates to attend and
represent them at the convention.
Members are the key to WFSEs strength.
Members choose the unions leaders and leaders are accountable to them.
At Convention, the delegates elect
the councils four offcers (presi-
dent, vice president, secretary and
treasurer), formulate policies for
the next biennium, and consider
any amendments to the Council 28
AFSCME International Convention
The highest governing body of
AFSCME International is the
convention of the membership.
This convention is held in even-
numbered years.
Locals elect delegates and al-
ternates and convene with other
AFSCME members from across the
country to elect offcers, formulate
policies and consider resolutions
and amendments to the AFSCME
