As a Union, we have a lot at stake in next year's legislative session beginning 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 where your help is critical. We can't win in November unless we get the vote out, and the most effective way to do that is to talk to voters -- on the phone and on their doorsteps. That work makes a difference in getting voters to turn in their ballot.
