Timeline For Winning Our Union Contract
Updated On: Nov 18, 2019

Like other state employees, Medical and Social Service interpreters collectively bargain a two-year union contract with the State on even years. Our biannual union contracts run from July 1st to June 30th of odd years. 

1.     Our Bargaining Team begins meeting in Winter 2020 for training.

2.     Our Bargaining Team designs a survey for our members asking about what the issues they would like the team to address during negotiations.

3.     Negotiations with the State for the 2021-23 union contract begin in Spring 2020. 

4.     Negotiations with the State end by the end of July 2020.

5.     By August 2020, our Bargaining Team reaches a Tentative Agreement with the State and submits it to our Local 1671 membership for ratification. Members vote yes or no on the contract.

6.     On October 1st 2020, after the membership ratifies the proposed Tentative Agreement, we submit our proposed union contract to WA State's Legislature.

7.     During the following legislative session that begins in January of 2021, the Legislature will vote yes or no to approve the Tentative Agreement.

8.     Once approved by the Legislature, the newly bargained contract will go into effect on July 1, 2021.
