Your ESPCP local union provides advocacy, bargaining, and other union support to about 600 secretaries, para-professionals, para-educators, bus drivers, mechanics, food service workers, licensed practical nurses, professional technical staff, and other classifications.

In the late 1980s, there was no representation for the classified staff in the Clover Park School District. Secretaries were mandated to work on school and sport nights. This was non-paid obligation. Classified employees had not had step increases for several years. Secretaries and paraeducators joined forces and created CPACE (Clover Park Association of Classified Employees). Today, we work alongside fellow union members that voted to create our union. Our union is affiliated with the state agency of Washington Education Association (WEA) and the country level of National Education Association (NEA). WEA provides satellite offices (ours is Soundview UniServ Council) which make access to union rep and support staff more accessible.

Affiliations of ESPCP are the Pierce County Central Labor Council (PCCLC), Washington Education Association, and National Education Association. Being affiliated with PCCLC has provided more access to resources for our members and connections within our community.
