Congrats to graduating recruits!

We'll  see you in the stations. Good luck with the rest of your year's probation - fires, medical emergencies, car wrecks, etc. Plus, lots of physical and skills testing and having to learn every reg and where every street in Spokane is. Congrats Class 2012-1!

Local 29 endorses Jay Inslee for Governor!

Jay Inslee stopped by the union hall on Tuesday and we endorsed him. He asked a lot of questions about us and we asked him a lot of questions. He was very knowledgeable regarding what we do, not just as in what we do as a union, but also what we do in our jobs. He says he will stand up for our basic human right of collective bargaining, which is something you probably won't hear from his opponent. Please check out his website.  Beside being a US congressman, he has been a laborer in many industries, so he knows what it means to "work for a living." Please ask your friends and neighbors to support him as well.
