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:

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.
