WSLC 2017 Convention
Hundreds of delegates representing unions across the state will gather in Vancouver for the 2017 Convention of the Washington State Labor Council, AFL-CIO. The convention will run from Tuesday, July 18 through Thursday, July 20 at the Hilton Vancouver Washington. Under the theme “Resist and Persist,” the 2017 WSLC Convention will feature distinguished guest speakers and educational workshops focused on organized labor’s efforts to resist the Trump administration’s anti-working family agenda and persist with successful efforts in Washington state to achieve social justice and more broadly shared prosperity. REGISTER ONLINE HERE!
In addition, delegates will consider resolutions that are a key part not just of the WSLC Convention, but of the organization itself. It is through the debate and passage of these resolutions that WSLC positions and policies are established. Any WSLC-affiliated union may submit resolutions. See the resolutions approved in 2016 for examples of the diverse issues that are covered. Delegates will also consider election endorsements to supplement those already made by the WSLC Executive Board.
