I’m from South Dakota. It’s a right to work state. I'd like to share my experience and why I'm #UnionStrong.

The average salary of state workers in South Dakota is close to half to two-thirds of what workers in Washington make. The cost of living there is about the same as Spokane, cheaper than Seattle.

The EWU bargaining team completed two days of bargaining on July 31.

We exchanged a number of proposals and came away with four articles where we reached tentative agreement and an MOU regarding HB2669 wherein we will engage in further discussion regarding the new rules regarding part-time employees to amend the current agreement and the 2019-21 agreement if needed.  We have eighteen (18) remaining articles to complete this cycle.
