Let’s all give one last push today to sign on co-sponsors to make severe workplace abuse illegal

Wow. We thank you. This session, we expect a record-breaker thanks to your work. In past sessions, 58 legislators out of 200 is the most we’ve signed on. And with two days left until the co-sponsor deadline (tomorrow, February 1), we’ve already signed on 48 legislators (same as last session, with more expected to sign on last minute). Here’s why:
You’ve been calling, emailing, and visiting your own state legislators, urging them to support workplace abuse legislation. Reaching out to your own legislators is the most impactful step you can take since legislators care about what their own constituents want so they serve you and get re-elected.
Yesterday, we had a highly successful Lobby Day. A bunch of us spoke with legislators and aides and passed out information to around 120 legislators. A huge thank you to those who took time from their days to make all of us heard.
Our lead sponsor Senator Paul Feeney is championing our bill. Yesterday, Senator Feeney reached out to other legislators, and we saw our number of co-sponsors go from 32 to 44.
We’re all spreading the word and not backing down. We’re spreading the word from so many angles:
You’re telling your stories so others can tell theirs.
Advocates are calling potential supporters.
Bill Author David Yamada is building a massive following on his blog and speaking at conferences about workplace abuse. 
Advocates are strategizing.
You’re sharing social media posts.
SEIU NAGE Local 282 lobbyists are pushing the bill to legislators.
Advocates are building an endorsement base of more than 40 organizations and speaking with groups. 
Advocates are reaching out to reporters.

Let’s give one last nudge today

SD 1355 is listed as one of the popular bills on MALegislature.gov.

We still need your help.

Call and email your state legislators — even if you’ve already done so
Legislators care most about what their own constituents want so they can get re-elected, so we ask you to:
Call your own State Rep AND State Senator. Tell whoever answers the phone “I’m calling to ask _____ to sign onto Senate Docket Number 1355, an act addressing workplace bullying, mobbing, and harassment, without regard to protected class status. The lead sponsor is Senator Paul Feeney.” They may ask you your name and address.

Followup with an email. Tell your legislators why you want them to sign onto Senate Docket Number 1355 and why you want the bill to pass. Include links to these flyers to explain the bill and the full text of the bill:
http://www.mahealthyworkplace.com/MAWorkplaceBullyingFactSheet.pdf
http://www.mahealthyworkplace.com/MAWorkplaceBullyingFactSheet3.pdf
https://malegislature.gov/Bills/191/SD1355

Ideas for angles to take in your email to make it different than your previous emails:
Addressing workplace bullying will address sexual harassment and #MeToo. Read this article from the LA Times to understand the connection so you can write about it in an email to legislators.
Remind legislators of some of the most severe workplace abuse stories affecting Massachusetts residents:
https://www.facebook.com/mahealthyworkplace/videos/719345008426550/
https://www.facebook.com/mahealthyworkplace/videos/357907344985573/
https://www.facebook.com/mahealthyworkplace/videos/376359419574389/
Focus on abusers and their behavior. Stress the fact that this issue is a bully problem, not due to a flaw in targets. It’s about holding abusers accountable.

Ask others to do the same.

Phone calls
Aside from your own legislators, you can call these two offices in support of the bill, even if you’re out of state. Tell whoever answers the phone “I’m calling to ask ___ to sign onto SD 1355, an act addressing workplace bullying, mobbing, and harassment, without regard to protected class status. The lead sponsor is Senator Paul Feeney.”

Here are the two numbers:
Senate President Karen Spilka, 617-722-1500
Speaker of the House Robert DeLeo, 617-722-2500


Related bills
Consider asking your legislators to sign onto these bills also:
SD 1771, An Act concerning sexual harassment policies in the commonwealth sponsored by Senator Diana DiZoglio. If passed, this bill will prevent the Commonwealth from asking a complainant to not disclose factual information related to claims of a settlement agreement while still protecting the complainant. In other words, the Commonwealth will no longer be able to have employees sign non-disclosure agreements to protect the Commonwealth.
SD 1412, An Act promoting equality and respect in the legislature sponsored by Senator Rebecca Rausch. If passed, this bill will require independent investigations regarding workplace harassment and sexual assault in the Legislature. This change would prevent leaders from protecting their friends during investigations.
SD 1709, Proposal for a legislative amendment to the Constitution to provide resources for education and transportation through an additional tax on incomes in excess of one million dollars sponsored by Senator Jason Lewis. Raise Up Massachusetts, the group that pushed for and won $15 minimum wage and paid FMLA, is pushing for more revenue through an additional tax on income over $1 million.

Thanks for your persistence on this bill, knowing that bills most often take years to pass.
