Who are we and how do we serve you?
WEA UniServ councils — each representing a group of local associations in a defined geographic region — provide staff assistance and training resources to strengthen, promote and advance public education and advocate for the rights and livelihood of education employees.UniServ is short for United Services and the the regional program was initiated to give you access to your union closer to home. UniServ staff can help local associations with:
- Community outreach
- Political action coordination
- Contract enforcement and collective bargaining
- Individual member representation in employment related issues
- Signing up for membership
- Finding your WEA membership ID number
While you might be familiar with your own local association, you may not be aware that your union/local is served by the WEA Olympic UniServ Council. We are one of the 21 regional council offices in the WEA. We serve more than 5,000 members in 34 locals across the Kitsap and Olympic peninsulas and as far south as Shelton. Our local associations represent teachers, counselors, OT/PTs, psychologists, secretaries, bus drivers, paraeducators, food service workers, custodians, grounds and facilities maintenance, mechanics, community college faculty, and many more.
