Our Mission

Employees organize primarily to secure better wages and better working conditions. We hold that they also organize in order to participate in the decisions which affect them at work. One of the fundamental tenets of Democratic government is the consent of the governed. We are both employees and citizens. Collective bargaining is the expression of citizenship in employment. Participation in the political life of the nation, State, local municipalities, and school district is but another aspect of that citizenship. In the same way that we are organized to improve the terms and conditions of employment, we are equally dedicated to exert ourselves individually and collectively, to fulfill the promise of American life. Amidst unparalleled abundance, there should not be want. We are under a solemn obligation to represent the members of this organization forcefully and effectively in negotiations with the management of the Walla Walla School District #140 and to conduct internal organizational affairs according to democratic standards.
