Seattle City Council President Sara Nelson (Position 9) released the following statement regarding newly approved labor agreements covering around 7,000 City of Seattle workers. Legislation authorizing the agreements was unanimously approved by Council on Tuesday and signed by Mayor Bruce Harrell this morning.

“Our city doesn’t work without city workers. From 911 dispatchers to park maintenance crews and everyone in between, they are behind crucial services that many take for granted. Public service is a noble profession. I am glad that, today, this Council has an opportunity to say thank you and ensure our city workforce is getting the cost-of-living increases they deserve,” said Council President Nelson.
