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 Irene Bowling for State Senate, and Kathy Haigh and Tammy Newton for State House. Each of them has pledged to support funding for our DOC contract and our other legislative priorities. Their opponents have not, nor have they gone through our endorsement process to answer our tough questions. We need legislators like these guys who will fight for us.
Please sign up to RSVP for this important canvass and we look forward to seeing you, and thanks for your help!
