The start of the 2013-14 session of the Massachusetts legislature is upon us, and Healthy Workplace Bill supporters here in the Bay State are preparing for a January 15 “Meet With Your Legislators Day” to formally begin our advocacy efforts.
Massachusetts Healthy Workplace Advocates is delighted to join a group of organizations led by MassCOSH on Tuesday, January 15, at 12:30 p.m., during which we’ll be asking our legislators to support bills that protect worker health & safety, including the HWB. We hope you will join us! Here is the relevant info from Deb Falzoi, communications director of Massachusetts Healthy Workplace Advocates:
Tuesday, January 15, 2013, 12:30 pm
State House, Gardner Auditorium Foyer
Join the Massachusetts Healthy Workplace Advocates to encourage legislator support of critical worker health and safety/rights bills such as:
-Halting bullying in the workplace;
-Extending health and safety protections to state employees;
-Increasing burial benefits for families of fallen workers to prevent financial hardship; and,
-Ensuring basic protections for domestic workers.
Many thanks to Marcy Gelb at MassCOSH for inviting us to be a part of this!
