For the first time ever, Massachusetts Senate Ways & Means is led by all women. And with women more likely to be bullied at work according to the Workplace Bullying Institute, timing couldn’t be better to get workplace anti-bullying legislation through the Senate, making it the furthest the bill would ever get in the Massachusetts State House.
We need your help to get there. With less than two months in the legislative session, which ends July 31, we ask you to help keep pressure on Senate Ways & Means to move Senate Bill 1013 to a vote in the Senate.
We ask you to make these four calls TODAY:
- Call these Senators and ask whoever answers the phone if the Senator will make Senate Bill 1013 a priority to make severe cases of workplace bullying illegal in Massachusetts:
Senator Karen Spilka (Chair), 617-722-1640
Senator Joan Lovely (Vice Chair), 617-722-1410
Senator Sonia Chang-Diaz (Assistant Vice Chair), 617-722-1673
- Ask your own State Senator via phone or email to write to Chairwoman Karen Spilka asking her to bring the Senate Bill 1013 to a floor vote.
- Post on Facebook and tweet using #ItStartsWithUs #WorkplaceBullying #mapoli to keep the conversation going and to increase awareness of the problem. You can tweet at these Senators using @KarenSpilka @SenJoanLovely @SoniaChangDiaz @BarrettSenate @wbrownsberger @VinnyDeMacedo @SalDiDomenico @JamieEldridgeMA @adamghinds @SenDonHumason @senjehlen @SenJohnFKeenan @SenMikeMoore @KOconnorIves @SenRichardJRoss @SenatorMikeRush @Sen_Jim_Welch
