Worker Center
Updated On: Sep 27, 2013

 

The Worker Center is the economic and workforce development division of the Council. Their 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 Reemployment Support Center, which aids unemployed and dislocated workers; the Labor Liaison, expanding partnerships with King County’s Community & Technical Colleges; linking United Way with Council affiliates and special initiatives with King County Airport, the City of Seattle Office of Economic Development, and Washington Dept. of Labor & Industries.

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 guide to free and low cost job search assistance in King County. (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 and the M. L. King County Labor Council. The primary goal of this work is to improve the quality of education and training programs through joint labor-college activities.
