Am I a Union Member?
Updated On: Sep 29, 2018

If your ULS payment statement has a deduction for “union dues" then you are a union member.

Union dues are 1.5% of your gross pay earned as an interpreter at DSHS, DCYF, and HCA-Medicaid enrollee appointments, up to a maximum of $76.50 / month.  Travel reimbursements are not part of your gross pay.  Union dues are deducted from your paycheck by the statewide coordinating entity, currently ULS and previously CTS LanguageLink, which replaced the 6 brokers and 20+ language companies in 2012. 

If you are not working regularly at DSHS, DCYF, and HCA-Medicaid enrollee appointments, you will be dropped from our union's membership roster. To keep supporting our union and reap its benefits  (e.g. free workshops), you can sign up for a $16 monthly flat fee. When you begin taking DSHS, DCYF, and HCA-Medicaid enrollee appointments, then you are switched back to the 1.5% automatically.

There is no initiation fee to join our union.

To confirm membership in Local 1671, please send an email to local1671[at]gmail.com.

To access the Members Only tab on this website you will need your own username and password which you can request by sending an email to local1671[at]gmail.com.

To confirm that your AFSCME membership card is on its way, please send an email to Irene Smith at WFSE's Organizing Department irenes[at]wfse.org.

While the union is obligated to represent all interpreters working in the bargaining unit, only union dues paying members can participate in the democratic governance of our union, including attending meetings, voting on our union contracts, electing our officers and accessing all sorts of union benefits such as dental discounts, workshops, etc.
