WFSE/AFSCME welcomes newest unit - and contract

With little fanfare, the first group of private-sector employees in the Federation ratified their contract and signed it last week.

They are the five or so members of the faith-based Americans Friend Service Committee’s Pacific Northwest Regional Office. They ratified their agreement March 15 and signed it with management Friday, March 18. Their contract is retroactive to October 2010 and runs until Sept. 30, 2011. They had been represented by Oregon AFSCME Council 75, but over time most of their workforce ended up in Seattle.
