Furlough activities Monday, Oct. 11

You may be taking part in job actions, rallies and other activities for the next furlough day, Monday, Oct. 11.

Whether it’s picketing, gathering food for local food banks or attending the Olympia Local 443 Furlough Fest, you’ll be making a number of public statements that need to be made:
  • It's about our healthcare, current and future furloughs. 
  • It's about coming together as a union and standing “Union Strong” in a time when state employees have given up so much and are told they have to give more. 
  • It's about reaching out to our community and informing them about the decisions that are being made about the services they will not be receiving because state officials won't raise the revenue needed.
  • It's about being informed about the up coming elections and the measures that will affect state employees directly.
If you’re in the Olympia area on Oct. 11 and want to attend the Furlough Fest Rally, it’s 11 a.m.-3 p.m., Monday, Oct. 11, at Sylvester Park, at the corner of Legion and Capitol Way in Olympia. This will be a time to show the people we work for – the public – the real people who care enough to stand up for them.
