NWCU Washington Strike Update

On September 11, 2021 Western/Central Washington NWCU members, representing some 12,000 workers, voted 56% to 44%, to reject the fourth tentative agreement with the Associated General Contractors of Washington and instead chose to strike. We are fighting together, as one voice, for fair wages and respect, good health care for ourselves and our families, and pensions that are there for us when our backs and knees give out. Washington is one of the least affordable states in the U.S., with some of the most expensive housing and childcare. In addition, we must address extremely expensive parking rates near work sites. Unlike white collar office workers, carpenters must haul heavy tools to job sites, making parking an expensive and unreimbursed expense that drains money out of workers’ wallets.


Below please find information to help keep you informed about and connected to the strike, no matter if you are on the picket lines or represented under a different contract in another state—we are One Union. Together, United.

Over the first days of the strike, we sent cameras out to capture sights and sounds from the picket lines. Here are those videos.
