Local 17 celebrates 100 years!

Did you know that Local 17 is turning 100 years old this month?!? That's right, our origins take us back to a small group of draftsmen in the Seattle shipyards in 1918, and for the last century, we've grown into this powerful collective of public employee professionals! For the rest of 2018, we'll be celebrating this milestone with a look back at our history and also preparing for our next century of advocacy and activism with the grand unveiling of our new look and website!

Do you have a Local 17 photo you'd like to share? Send it to Communications Director Deidre Girard! We might share it on our Facebook or Twitter page, or in an upcoming slideshow!
