As a Union, we have a lot at stake in next year's legislative session, which begins in January.
- We have an interest arbitration award to fund for our DOC members, which must be voted on by all our legislators Up or Down.
- We are working hard to pass statewide Paid Sick Days legislation to ensure that no one, including our the wait staff and cooks in restaurants where we take our families, don't have to come to work sick or go without a day's pay
- We will continue to lead in our fight against bad legislation for working families like Right to Work (for less) legislation, rollbacks to our pension system for public employees, and cuts to our strong Worker's Compensation system.
We absolutely can't win on these priorities if we don't have the votes in the State House and State Senate. It's simple math.
That's why we are supporting Rich Cowan for State Senate. Rich will be one of our strong allies in the legislature, and has already pledged to help pass funding for our DOC contract. His opponent, Sen. Michael Baumgartner has been the prime sponsor of Right to Work (for less) legislation, and he will push it once again if he is reelected.
