Council 2 Covid -19 update

Your Union

Pursuant to Governor Inslee’s directive, the state continues to be in shut-down mode. 

First and foremost, we are working to make sure everyone is working in a safe environment. A majority of our membership is working from home.

To date statewide we are getting concerns from employers about the loss of sales tax revenue and other sources such as gas tax revenue. To be up front we are in discussion with a dozen or so employers across the state who are now insisting on days off without pay and some layoffs. 

Our efforts are to try our best to keep everyone in paid status.

Council 2 is here to help with any job-related issues. If you have concerns or questions please contact your local union officers, your Staff Representative or call 1-800-775-6418 or email [email protected].

Congressional Level Congress continues to consider an aid package that would make up for some of the economic shortfall to counties and cities. To date this legislation has not passed. 

Please take a moment to contact your member of your congressional delegation and urge their support for funding that would go directly to local government (counties and cities). “Fund Counties and Cities”.
