Congratulations to our very own Local 302 Field Representative Crystal Tidwell who WON the election to City of Fairbanks, Alaska City Council!

On October 13, 2022, after an exhaustive court battle initiated by various employer associations, the Washington State Supreme Court ruled in IUOE Local 302's favor on the appropriate process for setting state prevailing wages.

This legal dispute was based on legislation that Local 302 helped enact which set the prevailing wage at the highest collective bargaining agreement rate in a county, rather than using the antiquated wage rate survey process.

The Associated General Contractors and the Associated Builders and Contractors filed a lawsuit to undo this law change that we fought hard to achieve. The employer associations failed in their effort to undermine fair prevailing wages for union workers.

Local 302 was fully engaged throughout the process and supported the cause by filing an amicus brief (friend of the court) in support of the law. We are thankful that our engagement and efforts helped to protect this law, which is an extreme benefit to our members.
