URGENT ACTION: End workplace bullying by asking your state legislators to co-sponsor the bill

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

We need your help. Getting legislators to request to co-sponsor the anti-workplace bullying Healthy Workplace Bill shows support behind the bill. Now is the time in the two-year legislative session when we sign on co-sponsors. We need you to ask your State Rep and State Senator to request to co-sponsor the bill.

In the past three full sessions, we’ve gone from 13 to 39 to 58 co-sponsors. We aim to sail past those numbers this session with thousands more supporters.

Here’s what we need you to do in the next week:

  1. Call your State Rep AND State Senator. Calling is much more effective than emailing. Legislators can’t ignore phone calls but can ignore emails in their inboxes. We’ll make it incredibly easy:

    Text your zip code to (520) 200-2223. Within a few minutes, you’ll get a text back with your legislators’ phone numbers. Call the two bottom numbers and ask the person who answers to request that the Rep or Senator co-sponsor Senate Docket 768. It’s that simple!

    We’ll be in close contact with Senator Jennifer Flanagan’s office in the upcoming week to find out who’s signed on and who we need to nudge, so the sooner you can make these calls, the more co-sponsors we can sign on to end workplace bullying in Massachusetts. Email this post onto your contacts so we can flood our legislators with phone calls.

  2. Email your State Rep AND State Senator. If you absolutely can’t call because you can’t get away from work during business hours or if you want to back up your phone call, email both of your legislators. We’ve made that process simple, too:Visit our easy tool to find your legislators and a form letter or write your own. The message will come from your email box.

    If you get a return email saying your message couldn’t go through, go to the Massachusetts Legislature website, find your State Rep’s and State Senator’s email addresses, and email them the old-fashioned way.

We have until Friday, February 3 to make urge our legislators to end workplace bullying, but the sooner you call or email, the more legislators we can ultimately reach.

Thank you for your part in helping to end workplace bullying.
