Why is it important that WA State Correctional Employees be granted interest arbitration rights?

A:

State correctional employees perform one of the most stressful, dangerous jobs in the United States. The State of Washington, however, has failed to acknowledge the uniquely dangerous nature of corrections’ work. County correctional employees, the Washington State Patrol, local police officers, firefighters and other law enforcement and public safety professionals have broad interest arbitration rights. It is time that our State’s correctional employees are afforded these rights as well.
