WEA Eastern Washington UniServ Council
The WEA Eastern Washington UniServ Council is a regional office of the Washington Education Association. UniServ means "Unified Services", a regional program that was initiated to give you, the members, access to your union closer to home. Our staff operates as part of the Field Services Division of WEA.
Our Council is geographically the largest council in the state, consisting of terrain that varies from the rolling wheatlands of the Palouse, to the mountainous terrain of the Selkirks. Countless lakes and rivers add to the scenic beauty of our area.
We are located in the urban city of Spokane (at 230 E. Montgomery Ave.), the economic and industrial center of the region. Our staff and governance serve 70 local education associations from the Canadian border to south of Pullman, and from the Idaho border to Grand Coulee in the west, serving over 4,600 members.
We provide staff assistance and training resources to strengthen, promote and advance public education, and advocate for the rights and livelihood of education employees. UniServ staff help members and local associations with:
- Community Outreach
- Political Action Coordination
- Contract Enforcement and Collective Bargaining
- Individual Member Representation for Employment Related Issues
