Join your Seattle union brothers and sisters and members of SAG-AFTRA in a show of Pride solidarity! Come out and walk in the annual Seattle Pride Parade. In this time when so many in the LGBTQ community, their families, friends, and allies are processing the recent tragic events in Orlando, we ask that you use this as an opportunity to celebrate so many colors of the rainbow as we all come together as one to celebrate, inspire, educate and support.

When: 9:30 a.m. (parade begins at 11 a.m.), Sunday, June 26

The waiver or Special Performance Contract (SPC), which goes into effect immediately for a three-year period, is designed to capture more union work in the Pacific Northwest Region by reducing restrictions on non-signatory producers and provide more generous terms of employment.
