Teamsters joined other union members and community activists at Seattle City Hall yesterday to speak out in favor of secure scheduling for workers in the fast food and retail industries.

A proposed city ordinance would require large employers in those industries to provide schedules at least two weeks in advance and to give workers an estimate of how many hours they can expect to work in a given week.

Under the banner Our Time Counts, dozens of workers testified before councilmembers about the importance of being able to plan for things like doctors appointments and taking your kids to and from school.

The Council will vote on the ordinance next Tuesday, September 13 at 9:30 AM. You can tell the Council you support secure scheduling by adding your name to the online petition here.
