2017–19 collective bargaining agreements

Looking for the 2019–21 collective bargaining agreement status report and submittal? See them on our agency memo page.

Note:  *The U.S. Supreme Court issued its decision in Janus v. AFSCME on June 27, 2018. The primary issue in Janus was whether public employees can be compelled to pay representation fees as a condition of employment. The Court held, "[n]either an agency fee nor any other payment to the union may be deducted from a nonmember's wages, nor may any other attempt be made to collect such a payment, unless the employee affirmatively consents to pay."

In light of the Janus ruling and its inconsistency with the current contractual requirement for non-members to pay representation fees or non-association fees, OFM will begin immediately renegotiating the provisions of the dues deduction article(s) in each collective bargaining agreement.*
 

These collective bargaining agreements are effective during the biennium covering July 1, 2017 through June 30, 2019. The agreements cover employees in general government service, Washington State Patrol, higher education, child care and home care workers, adult family home providers, language access providers and employees of the Washington State Ferries. The website of the Washington State Legislature provides access to RCWs and WACs referenced in the agreements.
