Language Access Providers 2019-21

BARGAINING TEAM STRUCTURE

WFSE members in good standing in the Language Access Providers bargaining unit will elect up to twelve (12) bargaining team members to their bargaining team based on the following allocation and election groups:

  • Group 1: All interpreters in Clark and Skamania counties = 1 bargaining team position
  • Group 2: All interpreters in Clallam, Cowlitz, Jefferson, Grays Harbor, Kitsap, Lewis, Mason, Pacific, Thurston, and Wahkiakum counties = 1 bargaining team position
  • Group 3: All interpreters in Pierce county = 1 bargaining team position
  • Group 4: All interpreters in King county = 2 bargaining team positions
  • Group 5: All interpreters in Snohomish county = 1 bargaining team position
  • Group 6: All interpreters in Island, San Juan, Skagit, and Whatcom counties = 1 bargaining team position
  • Group 7: All interpreters in Chelan, Douglas, Grant, Kittitas, Klickitat, Okanogan, and Yakima counties = 1 bargaining team position
  • Group 8: All Interpreters in Asotin, Ferry, Garfield, Lincoln, Pend Orielle, Spokane, Stevens, and Whitman counties = 1 bargaining team position
  • Group 9: All Interpreters in Adams, Benton, Columbia, Franklin and Walla Walla counties = 1 bargaining team position
  • Group 10: All Interpreters in the bargaining unit whose primary working language is not Spanish or Russian = 2 bargaining team positions

Candidates may run for only one Election Group.

  • Election Groups 1-9:  Candidates for bargaining team positions in Election Groups 1-8 will be nominated and elected by WFSE members in the LAP bargaining unit who reside in the counties specified for each Election Group. The Interpreter’s primary residential address shall be used to determine which Election Group an Interpreter belongs to. Only in cases where the Interpreter does not have a primary address shall post office mailing boxes be used for the basis of determining Election Group membership. If an eligible Interpreter lives outside of the State of Washington, they shall be considered part of the Election Group with the county geographically nearest to their primary residence address.
  • Election Group 10: Candidates for bargaining team positions in Election Group 9 will be nominated and elected by all WFSE members in the LAP bargaining unit. To be eligible to be nominated and run for a position in election group 9, the candidate’s primary working language cannot be Spanish or Russian.

Ties will be decided by run off. Should a member of the bargaining team need to be replaced, the position will be filled by the next runner-up in that election group from the original election. If there is no runner-up, the WFSE President will appoint the replacement.
