Worker Center
Updated On: Jan 27, 2015

The Worker Center, AFL-CIO is the economic and workforce development division of the Martin Luther King Jr. County Labor Council, AFL-CIO. Our goals include increasing availability and accessibility of living wage jobs, improving workforce training systems, assisting laid-off workers and building alliances among labor, community and environmental groups. The Center responds to plant closures and other worker dislocation, works to get organized labor’s message into our schools and promotes worker training leading to living wage jobs. Programs coordinated by the Worker Center include the King County Reemployment Support Center, which aids unemployed and dislocated workers and the Labor Liaison, expanding partnerships with King County’s Community & Technical Colleges and special initiatives with the City of Seattle Office of Economic Development, and King County Department of Transportation.

Core Programs
King County Reemployment Center

This program organizes the community's response to plant closures and mass layoffs. It works with community partners to set up labor-management readjustment committees at the sites of employers as the best way to get information and services to people before they are on their last paycheck. The RSC publishes the Job Seekers’ Update, which is a quarterly guide to free and low cost job search assistance across the Central Puget Sound. Contact Charlie Best @ (206) 441-4942 for more information. (See left column for a link.)

King County Community and Technical College Labor Liaison
This program provides services designed to foster and facilitate authentic partnerships between the colleges, city & county and the Martin Luther King Jr. County Labor Council. One of the primary goals of this work is to improve the quality of education and training programs through joint labor-college and labor-local government activities. Contact Joan Weiss @ (206)441-8408 ext. 16 for more information.
