Our 2017-2019 state employee contracts are at stake this legislative session - along with the 2% cost-of-living adjustments we bargained. The legislature will have to decide whether to invest in Washington and fund our contracts for state employees, or to send everyone back to the bargaining table.
WPEA represents state employees in every legislative district, and a 2% COLA would have a significant economic impact in communities across the state.
We need to send a message reminding the legislators about that economic impact, so we're asking our members what they will do with a COLA.
NOTE: Some questions in the survey defaulted to "required," when they should have been optional. If you were unable to submit your response before, please take the survey again. We want to hear from you!
