ELECTION ENDORSEMENTS

Making a Difference Together

NO WORKFORCE IN THE STATE OF WASHINGTON HAS MORE AT STAKE IN DECISIONS MADE BY THE LEGISLATURE THAN STATE EMPLOYEES.

WFSE Local 443 wants to spread our message of justice and worker empowerment. We believe that a single action through elected representatives can make a significant difference in the community, and that collective action can greatly impact the world. We endorse the following candidates that work to improve the lives of workers, their families, and society as a whole.

JOIN PEOPLE
(Public Employees Organized to Promote Legislative Equality) 
We must take an active role to elect politicians who advocate for issues that are important to working families, like the need to balance the economy, defend workers’ rights, secure workers’ benefits, invest in public services, and ensure a secure retirement for all. By contributing today, you can help elect local, state and federal candidates who will fight for us and the issues we care about most. Click here to join PEOPLE.
