The Washington Federation of State Employees is coordinating “Unity Rallies” for this Thursday, June 18. These events are being coordinated for the first day of the U.S. Open golf championship at Chambers Bay in Pierce County. Many legislators, who are getting 11% raises granted by an independent board, are expected to attend the U.S. Open instead of working to avert an impending government shutdown and layoffs of thousands of state workers whose 4.8% negotiated pay raises are also in jeopardy in the budget impasse. The growing list of June 18 events is posted online.
