Safe and rewarding work environment

Employment Policies
LOTT strives to provide a safe, comfortable, and rewarding work environment for all employees. Interesting jobs, an excellent benefits package, and innovative programs help attract great people into our workforce. LOTT's policies and programs allow our employees to do their best work by offering support and resources for professional development, work-life balance, personal well-being, and a connection to the community we serve.

The LOTT Clean Water Alliance is an equal opportunity employer. Discrimination against any individual in regard to hiring, promotion, discipline, or other employment practices because of age, sex, race, creed, color, national origin, sexual orientation, or the presence of any physical, mental, or sensory disability is prohibited. We are committed to fostering an environment where everyone, including workers and visitors, feels welcome, included, and is treated with respect.

Labor Relations
Positive employee and labor relations are essential to creating a productive work environment. Many LOTT employees are represented by the Washington State Council of County and City Employees (WSCCCE), Council 2 of the American Federation of County and City Employees (AFSCME). LOTT uses a collaborative bargaining approach to negotiate its labor agreement with the Union. This agreement addresses wages, hours, and working conditions for represented employees.
