Western Washington Painters Negotiations update

An up-date from your Negotiating Team and District Council 5 Union Representatives

A tentative agreement has been reached.

The language is being drafted on a new proposal with the Western WA Signatory Painting Employers (WWSPE) that will be ready for your consideration by mid-October.  A series of short informational meetings to discuss the proposal will be scheduled in Seattle and Tacoma prior to any ratification vote.  Members should make an effort  to review and understand the proposal prior to voting.  A key component of the negotiating process is to have a large percentage of the membership showing up to vote on any proposal.  Numbers speak louder than words!

A mailer will go out to the membership with information on times and places of these Question and Answer sessions.

Voting will take place a week later.

In Solidarity,  Painter’s Negotiating Team

Painting Negotiation Update

We had some discussions with our contractors on June 12, 2015.  Western Washington Signatory Paint Employers (WWSPE) doesn’t see themselves meeting with their team until sometime after June 18, 2015.  Once this occurs we will set a date to come back to the negotiations table.  We will continue to be informed on any new developments.
