Update on Massachusetts Workplace Bullying Legislation, 1/18/10

Last week, supporters of Massachusetts Senate No. 699 (Sen. Joan Menard, sponsor), a/k/a the Healthy Workplace Bill, met here in Boston to plan our strategy.  Here is where we are in terms of upcoming advocacy work:

January 27 Legislative Hearing

The Joint Committee on Labor and Workforce Development will hold a public hearing on Senate 699 on Wednesday, January 27, at 10:30 a.m. in Hearing Room A2 of the Massachusetts State House.

If you would like to submit oral or written testimony at the January 27 hearing, contact Greg Sorozan at: gsorozan@verizon.net

Here is a link that lists members of the Committee:  http://www.mass.gov/legis/comm/j43.htm. If your state representative and/or state senator is a member, please send a letter or e-mail, or place a phone call in support of the bill.  Also, you can contact Senator McGee and Representative Coakley-Rivera, committee co-chairs, expressing your support.

Soliciting Organizational Support

We welcome organizational endorsements for the Healthy Workplace Bill.  Please contact David Yamada (david_yamada@yahoo.com) or Greg Sorozan (gsorozan@verizon.net) if your organization would like to support the bill.
