We are Local 1671 of the WFSE/AFSCME Council 28. We are the labor union of interpreters providing services for the State of Washington. Our union movement began in the fall of 2009 in response to medical and social service spoken language interpreters' frustration with the 'broker system' delivery model, unfair treatment and substandard pay.
