Not everyone is able to go to Olympia. But there's still a way you can be involved: through our Legislative Education Groups (or LEGs). LEGs is an effective way for you and other members to sit down and talk with the legislators in your district in a comfortable neighborhood setting. It's a great opportunity to meet and have a face-to-face conversation about what's important to you as a union member and public employee.
If you are interested in being involved, contact Richard Burton at 206-242-4777 ext. 20 and he'll schedule a LEGs meeting in your district. Several are planned between now and the time the legislative session begins, which is Jan. 12.
