Welcome to Interpreters United!

INTERPRETERS UNITED Local 1671

We are the labor union for freelance spoken language interpreters contracted by Washington State to render services for Medicaid enrollees and DSHS clients pursuant to RCW 41.56.030(10).  We are all small business owners working for Washington State as independent contractors.  Through our union's advocacy, we have worked together with our state to save millions of taxpayers' dollars previously wasted on excessive administrative costs.

We promote lean government principles by streamlining the procurement process of language interpretation services.  By directing limited state dollars to the people actually providing the services, instead of middlemen, we can raise the quality of interpreter services provided to Limited English Proficient (LEP) Washingtonians.  We support a ONE STOP SHOPPING SOLUTION for rendering services in all three delivery modalities: in-person, over-the-phone and video remote interpretation (VRI). We embrace cloud technology advances in communications and Software as a Service (SaaS) business models.

THOUGH DIVERSE WE ARE ...

UNITED WE STAND AND UNITED WE CAN!

Local 1671 members are a group of dedicated interpreters who work for the greater good. Every odd year, its membership elects its interpreter leaders who, for a 2-year term, volunteer their time and share their knowledge freely with their colleagues.

Interpreters United is Local 1671 of the Washington Federation of State Employees a.k.a. AFSCME Council 28. The American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees represents 1.6 million public service workers and is affiliated to the American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO).
