Security Officers in Seattle Ratify Strong New Contract, Raising Wages and Limiting Mandatory Overtime

SEIU6 security officers voted to ratify a new contract that will cover over 4,000 officers working in King County for the next 3 years.

Their new contract includes:

·      the strongest annual wage increases ever won

·      increased paid time off including Juneteenth as a holiday,

·      faster vacation accrual rates,

·      increased employer-paid healthcare premiums

·      protections against mandatory overtime

The contract is expected to bring an additional $22 million in wages and benefits to union security officers over the next 3 years.

“As a union, we fought for this contract through thick and thin. A lot of things have changed since the pandemic started. We’re considered essential workers and our employers finally heard us when we demanded to be respected, protected, and paid” said Security Officer Jasmine Bell.

These officers join the thousands of other officers across the country who are fighting for fair contracts this year.
