Lori Province
Field Mobilization Director

As Field Mobilization Director since 2008, Lori works with affiliates to support and encourage the participation of individual members with many different political and legislative and community programs. Her efforts are directed toward continuing the success of the WSLC's Labor Neighbor political program, and during the legislative session, she focuses on workforce training and apprenticeship issues in addition to mobilizing our members around the state to support the WSLC Legislative Agenda.

Lori served at the WIA Labor Liaison for the Washington State Labor Council for 12 years prior to becoming Field Mobilization Director. She was responsible for performing "rapid response" activities -- including outreach to inform dislocated workers about the employment and training services available through the Workforce Investment Act (formerly known as the Job Training Partnership Act); rapid response to plant closure and downsizing events in coordination with the Employment Security Department; technical assistance in forming labor-management committees to deal with such events; and generally representing the interests of dislocated and unemployed workers in employment and training planning.

Lori joined the WSLC in July 1996 after serving as a union representative for the Washington State Council of County and City Employees, AFSCME, in Lynnwood for eight years. She has also served as a union representative for Service Employees International Union Local 120 in Everett. A longtime labor activist, Lori has been active in the WSLC's WISHA Monitoring Committee for years, along with several government task forces and councils developing workforce development policies.

Born and raised in Pierce County, Lori and her husband, Raleigh, live in Bellingham and have two grown daughters and three grandsons.
