The County has occasion­ally activated the Volun­tary Separa­tion Program” in various depart­ments. Our bargaining unit has taken advan­tage of VSP in the past if layoffs were being contemplated. 

Because VSP has been set forth by King County Ordinance, WSNA agreed to create an MOA that would be subject to the terms and condi­tions of the Ordinance. This elimi­nates the need to renego­tiate a VSP MOA each time they county plans to invoke it. It is not currently activated.
