President’s Message

Hello AFSCME Local 2170,

I hope everyone has had a safe and healthy 2020. This year, our Union has continued to put efforts into safeguarding workplace welfare and equality for all members. Particularly in the age of a global pandemic, now is the time for us to come together and fight for workers’ rights. This Union continues to back each and every member at Local 2170 and is eager to bridge the gap between us, the worker, and our employer. To this end, ensuring a proper Democratic system is always first and foremost in our minds. As a result, we will continue to fight to make sure everyone’s voices are heard, and all ideas are considered.

For all Local 2170 members there are three main principles that we would like to emphasize in the current era of unease and uncertainty. First, we will relentlessly fight to ensure fair treatment of all workers, both in the workplace and in the public sector. This includes insisting each and every member receives a living wage, extraordinary healthcare, and unparalleled benefits. Second, we want to guarantee equal opportunities for all Local 2170 members. Certainly, all members should be given equal and fair chances for promotions, wages, and prospects in the workplace, regardless of demographics or orientations. Third, we intend to place an emphasis on securing safe and reliable working conditions for each and every employee. This includes guaranteeing proper maintenance of all equipment, continuous upkeep of all facilities, and ensuring exhaustive disinfection and cleaning of all workplace locations. Through these three ideals, we hope to continue raising the bar for what it means to be an employee for the City of Renton.

As Union President, I promise to make sure everyone has their input heard. Our Union has a permanent place at the table for all contract negotiations, and I will continue to make sure your voices are listened to and understood. Our Union is strong and resilient, and we will always strive for what is right for the people; specifically, it is my hope that everyone can come together for the continued improvement of workers liberties and rights. I personally guarantee that you will always have someone on your side fighting for what is right.

In Solidarity and Union Strong

Jayson Gallaway
