State House Votes, Workers Win!
Paid Sick Days and a higher minimum wage have passed the State House! On March 3, 2015 the State House of Representatives passed these two important bills that would improve the lives of workers and our communities. UFCW 21 has been a leader in pushing for Paid Sick Leave and the Higher Minimum Wage for years and is partnered with many community groups and other unions on this legislation. Now these bills move over to the State Senate.
Standing Up for Paid Sick Days

She spoke at a Seattle Press Conference on Friday, February 20 surrounded by TV cameras and Senator Patty Murray and Representative Susan DelBene as they promoted their Healthy Families Act which would provide access to 7 days a year of paid sick days to millions of workers across the nation.
Our Union member bargaining team had another round of negotiations yesterday. The next step is collectively taking action next week by signing the letter to MultiCare's CEO and the community about all the different issues we are pushing for in the negotiations.
The 2015 legislative session begins on Monday, January 12 in Olympia and our lawmakers will once again face important decisions that affect our workplaces. In order to make progress on our priority issues this year, our elected leaders need to hear from us, hear our stories, and hear why these issues matter to us.
