From the WFSE Executive Committee:

As proud officers of this strong union, we are excited for your participation in the 2021 Rise Up Conference on Saturday, June 5 & Sunday, June 6.

We invite you to take advantage of this opportunity to receive valuable education in areas critical to your success as a member leader.

Shop stewards and member organizers are the face of our union in the workplace.

As you represent and organize bargaining unit employees, you are trusted to communicate accurate information, provide important follow-up, ensure rights are known, exercised, and upheld, and do so in a professional manner consistent with the expectations of member leaders within our Union. These are big responsibilities, and we thank you for taking them seriously.

Members of Council 28’s Steward and Organizing Committees developed this educational conference with these responsibilities in mind.

They have listened to and considered feedback from shop stewards and member organizers around the state and developed workshops and other materials designed to meet your needs.

Please join us for this virtual educational conference and brush up on your existing skills, add to your growing toolkit, and connect virtually with other WFSE member leaders.

If 2020 taught us anything it is that now more than ever we need informed shop stewards and active member organizers in every agency:

  • To protect our rights
  • Fight for on-the-job safety, and
  • Promote the values of service, social justice, and the dignity of each member

We are here to support you in this important work of improving the lives of workers throughout Washington state and invite you to complete your registration NOW so our conference organizers can plan for your attendance, keep you updated with information, and details regarding this conference.
