Cabinet on Economic and General Welfare


The Cabinet on Economic and General Welfare is the democratically elected governing body for WSNA’s union-related work state-wide. All members represented by WSNA for collective bargaining (i.e. you are a dues-paying member working at a WSNA local unit) are eligible to vote and / or run for office on the Cabinet.

Note: “Economic and General Welfare” is the term we use for our labor relations/union-related programs.

  • Develop and review policies and procedures to the conduct of the economic and general welfare program
  • Formulate program objectives and periodically evaluate the state economic and general welfare program
