Make these five calls this week to keep buzz going about workplace abuse

Photo by JÉSHOOTS on Pexels.com
In the last week, we signed on one of our calls of the week and another legislator for a total of 97 sponsors of workplace abuse legislation in Massachusetts. While our goal this session is 120 co-sponsors, we’re right now only three away from getting half of the entire State Legislature on board.
 
See who’s already co-sponsored the bill


Calls of the week
Each week, we’ll handpick five legislators to all call and email to urge them to co-sponsor the bill.

Here are this week’s five legislators:
Senator Cindy Friedman (D-Arlington), Cindy.Friedman@masenate.gov, 617-722-1432
Senator Adam Hinds (D-Pittsfield), adam.hinds@masenate.gov, 617-722-1625
Senator Patricia Jehlen (D-Somerville), Patricia.Jehlen@masenate.gov, 617-722-1578
Senator John Keenan (D-Quincy), John.Keenan@masenate.gov, 617-722-1494
Senator Eric Lesser (D-Longmeadow), eric.lesser@masenate.gov, 617-722-1291

The process
Call 
If you live in the legislator’s district: Legislators care most about what their own constituents want so they can get re-elected. So if you live in the district of the legislator you’re calling, let whoever answers the phone know that upfront. Tell whoever answers the phone “Hi! My name is _____. I live in ______. 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 address.
If you DON’T live in the legislator’s district: You can still call. Tell whoever answers the phone “Hi! My name is _____. I’m calling with the Massachusetts Healthy Workplace Advocates 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.”
Followup with an email. Tell these 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:

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. Send them a link to the article.
Remind legislators of some of the most severe workplace abuse stories affecting Massachusetts residents:

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.

Next steps for workplace abuse legislation in Massachusetts

Photo by JorgeArturo Andrade on Pexels.com

Our official next step in this two-year legislative session is getting a bill number that we’ll use for the rest of the session (right now, we only have a docket number). Then we wait for a hearing date to testify in front of the Joint Committee on Labor and Workforce Development, which can happen anytime this spring and even on short notice.

These committee members were announced yesterday:

Senate Members:
Pat Jehlen, Chair
Jason Lewis, Vice Chair
Sal DiDomenico*
John Keenan
Michael Moore*
Patrick O’Connor*

House Members:
Paul Brodeur, Chair
Stephen Hay, Vice Chair*
John Barrett III
Gerard Cassidy
Jim Hawkins*
Liz Malia*
David Robertson*
Steven Ultrino*
Susannah Whipps*
Joseph McKenna (Ranking Minority)
William Crocker, Jr.

What this news means
Of the 17 committee members, nine are current co-sponsors, meaning more than half the committee already supports workplace abuse legislation. Often committee leaders won’t co-sponsor bills, but both Jason Lewis and Paul Brodeur — last session’s committee chairs — co-sponsored this bill in past sessions and moved it to the Senate last session. So we can put that level of support up to 11.

Where we can use advocacy is with Senator Pat Jehlen. She’s new to this committee in recent years and though she’s a progressive leader, she hasn’t signed onto this bill before. It’s our job to talk with her aides about why we need workplace abuse legislation and address any concerns Senator Jehlen or her aides may have.

How you can help
Though her leadership position makes her less likely to co-sponsor the bill, it’s still important to show support for it. It’s always ideal to go in and meet with aides either at the State House or during local office hours. Otherwise, we can call her office at 617-722-1578 AND email her at Patricia.Jehlen@masenate.gov.

If you’re in her district (Medford, Somerville, Cambridge wards 9 and 11, and Winchester precincts 4-7), your voice carries the most weight with your own legislators. Tell whoever answers the phone “I’m a constituent calling to ask Senator Jehlen to support Senate Docket Number 1355, an act addressing workplace bullying without regard to protected class status.”

If you’re not in her district, legislators still care what you have to say. Tell whoever answers the phone “I’m an advocate calling to ask Senator Jehlen to support Senate Docket Number 1355, an act addressing workplace bullying without regard to protected class status.”


In either case, followup with an email saying something similar and explaining why you support the bill. You can also send these three flyer links:

Overview
Myths
LA Times article: “To end sexual harassment on the job, end workplace bullying” 

You can also:
Forward this message onto friends in her district asking them to do the same.
Flyer in her district (outside the Davis Square T stop, for example), especially during rush hour.

Make these five calls this week to keep buzz going in the State House

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
In the last week, we signed on four more co-sponsors for a total of 95 sponsors of workplace abuse legislation in Massachusetts. While our goal this session is 120 co-sponsors, we’re right now only five away from getting half of the entire State Legislature on board.

Help us reach 120 co-sponsors for workplace abuse legislation in Massachusetts

Photo by Christina Morillo on Pexels.com
In the last few days alone, we added on three more co-sponsors, putting us at 94 sponsors including lead sponsor Senator Paul Feeney. That’s almost half of the entire State Legislature.

We’re not stopping until this bill passes.

Here’s how you can help make a difference:


Phonebanking on Tuesday nights
One of the most effective ways to build support is to call potential legislators and supporters. The best part: it’s extremely easy (we have scripts) and rewarding since you speak directly with people who can make an impact. Make sure to bring your phone and laptop.

Tuesday, February 12, 6-8pm
9 Hamilton Place, Boston (or home if you’re not in the Boston area)
RSVP through the Facebook event or email Chiuba at chiuba@gmail.com.

Tuesday, February 19, 6-8pm
45 Mt. Auburn St, Cambridge (or home if you’re not in the Cambridge area)
RSVP through the Facebook event or email Chiuba at chiuba@gmail.com.

Tuesday, February 26, 6-8pm
45 Mt. Auburn St, Cambridge (or home if you’re not in the Cambridge area)
RSVP through the Facebook event or email Chiuba at chiuba@gmail.com.


Lobby Days
After a highly successful Lobby Day last week, we’re planning two more. It’s your chance to speak directly with aides who directly influence legislators’ decisions.

Tuesday, February 19, 11am-1pm
State House, 24 Beacon Street, Boston, meeting in Memorial Hall, floor 2
Only State senators who haven’t signed onto the bill
RSVP through the Facebook event or email info@mahealthyworkplace.com.

Wednesday, March 13, 11am-1pm
State House, 24 Beacon Street, Boston, meeting in Memorial Hall, floor 2
Only State reps who haven’t signed onto the bill
RSVP through the Facebook event or email info@mahealthyworkplace.com.
 


Calls of the week
If you haven’t already called these five legislators of the week, make sure to reach out to them today or tomorrow:
Senator Sonia Chang-Diaz (D-Boston), Sonia.Chang-Diaz@masenate.gov, 617-722-1673 
Senator Nick Collins (D-Boston), Nick.Collins@masenate.gov, 617-722-1150
Senator Cynthia Creem (D-Newton), Cynthia.Creem@masenate.gov, 617-722-1639
Senator Vinny deMacedo (R-Plymouth), Vinny.deMacedo@masenate.gov, 617-722-1330 
Senator Ryan Fattman (R-Sutton), Ryan.Fattman@masenate.gov, 617-722-1420 

The process
Call 
If you live in the legislator’s district: Legislators care most about what their own constituents want so they can get re-elected. So if you live in the district of the legislator you’re calling, let whoever answers the phone know that upfront. Tell whoever answers the phone “Hi! My name is _____. I live in ______. 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 address.
If you DON’T live in the legislator’s district: You can still call. Tell whoever answers the phone “Hi! My name is _____. I’m calling with the Massachusetts Healthy Workplace Advocates 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.”
Followup with an email. Tell these 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. Send them a link to the article.
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.

If you want to do more
Many of you have told us you’ll urge your friends in towns where we don’t have co-sponsorships to reach out to their legislators. So here’s who’s left to sign on so you know what districts we need calls and emails in.

A project coordinator was blown off after reporting workplace abuse

Photo by Vojtech Okenka on Pexels.com

I work as a project coordinator in Boston.

The bullying begin after I moved to a different department. I wasn’t getting trained or work to do after moving to the new area. I would ask the project managers and director if there was anything I could help with. They’d say no but would give work to the other project coordinator. I expressed my concern of not getting work to do. Then my cubemate started turning the radio up loud, someone took my cell phone off my desk, and someone opened my desk drawer. Someone also broke the lock to my file cabinet and took things out of it.

The co-worker sent an email stating that I needed to sign in and out because he didn’t know where I was when I’d be to lunch or a meeting or after I supported our new assistant general manager at an event.

I asked myself: why would my group not want to work together?

Problems escalated when I went to Employee Relations. They were upset that I didn’t just let it go and let them continue to do whatever they wanted. My computer started acting funny: login passwords, documents that I was working on, and data I entered would be changed. My credit card company called me to tell me someone was trying to check my balance from a different number, and I’d have problems at the ATM. Random people would follow me in the from my work building, in stores, and on the road (a number of cars would drive fast behind me, stop at a dime, high-beam me, then swiftly drive away).

The employee said to me while I was about to leave that they’re going to get me. “Watch.” This situation was reported to police, who said there was nothing they could do.

I reported the crazy driving and high-beaming to the police, and they told me to write down license plate numbers and go to the station to write a report. After my third call to the police about the high-beaming, they said that I was having psychotic issues and wanted me to be evaluated to see if I can do my job. No investigation was done by them.

My director said he can’t make grown people do anything.

They did an investigation and said there was no proof of anything. They made a recommendation for my seat to be moved and for the abuser to stay away from me.

I was told I couldn’t go back to work until I saw a psychiatrist. I am also mandated to see the onsite social worker for a year. I believe I was passed over from position to leave the department.

I’m looking over my shoulder all the time, checking the rearview mirror to see if anyone is following and high-beaming. It’s been stressful. To see people laugh and joke about this so-called game they play with my life is not acceptable.

I would like workplace abuse legislation to pass because it’s terrible for adults to behave this way and not have repercussions for their behavior. It’s not healthy for anyone to be targeted because they want to be an effective employee.

My advice to other targets: stay strong. It’s not you — it’s them. Keep being the best you you can be. Keep striving to improve your career in spite of other people’s opinions of you.

We just hit a record with workplace abuse legislation support. So what’s next?

Wow! We’re still so excited about the progress we made last week. Our efforts paid off bigtime thanks to your tireless efforts. As Co-Coordinator and Bill Author David Yamada put it: “We have gone from being a novelty, to a presence, and now to a genuine force.” Kudos to everyone who made calls, sent emails, visited legislators, and told friends about the bill. We can’t thank you enough for your persistence on this bill, knowing bills often take 8+ years to pass (and we’re on 9).

It’s all proof your voice matters.

What’s next
For those new to the process, here’s what happens next in the two-year legislative session:
We testify at a hearing in front of the Joint Committee on Labor and Workforce Development sometime this spring. (It’s been anywhere from April to June in past sessions, and sometimes it’s announced last minute.) We welcome you to join us and make your voice heard (recommended guidelines to come).
The committee moves the bill to the Senate since it’s a Senate Bill. They have until sometime in February 2020 to make this step happen.
The Senate brings the bill to a floor vote.
The bill moves to the House. We wait for a floor vote.
Anything can happen at that point (changes that can go back to the Senate, for example). 
If the bill gets passed, it goes to the Governor’s desk for signing. Ninety days later, it becomes law.

In past sessions, we’ve made it as far as step 2 (which is huge considering the 6,000+ bills that get introduced in the State House).

The bill can get stalled at any point in the process for any reason. Our biggest obstacle is that the bill simply isn’t a priority compared to other issues. 

 
This session, we can change that
We found out last week that there’s something special about Senate bills (which ours is): the deadline for co-sponsorships extends to when the Joint Committee on Labor and Workforce Development moves the bill forward.

So we have the gift of MONTHS to keep the pressure on the remaining legislators who haven’t co-sponsored yet. We’ll get to keep the buzz about this bill going in the State House and continue to be a force. We’ll even run a couple more Lobby Days in the next couple months. (Stay tuned for more info.)

Our goal this session: 120 co-sponsors. We can do it.

 
See who’s already co-sponsored the bill


Calls of the week
Each week, we’ll handpick five legislators to all call and email to urge them to co-sponsor the bill.

Here are this week’s five legislators:
Senator Sonia Chang-Diaz (D-Boston), Sonia.Chang-Diaz@masenate.gov, 617-722-1673 
Senator Nick Collins (D-Boston), Nick.Collins@masenate.gov, 617-722-1150
Senator Cynthia Creem (D-Newton), Cynthia.Creem@masenate.gov, 617-722-1639
Senator Vinny deMacedo (R-Plymouth), Vinny.deMacedo@masenate.gov, 617-722-1330 
Senator Ryan Fattman (R-Sutton), Ryan.Fattman@masenate.gov, 617-722-1420 

The process
Call 
If you live in the legislator’s district: Legislators care most about what their own constituents want so they can get re-elected. So if you live in the district of the legislator you’re calling, let whoever answers the phone know that upfront. Tell whoever answers the phone “Hi! My name is _____. I live in ______. 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 address.
If you DON’T live in the legislator’s district: You can still call. Tell whoever answers the phone “Hi! My name is _____. I’m calling with the Massachusetts Healthy Workplace Advocates 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.”

Followup with an email. Tell these 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. Send them a link to the article.
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.

We just SMASHED our record for workplace abuse legislation support

Photo by Skitterphoto on Pexels.com
We did it.

The most legislators we’ve ever signed on in one session is 58. 

Today we reached 90.

We thank you.


When we get targeted, we get organized. Our calls, emails, and visits made a huge difference in the last two weeks. They sent a clear message to legislators that we want protections for targets of workplace abuse — and we’re in it until we get them.

There’s more great news
We found out that today was only the deadline for House bill co-sponsorships. Ours is a Senate bill, so the deadline for co-sponsorships extends to when the Joint Committee on Labor and Workforce Development moves the bill forward. That happens after the hearing this spring (date to be announced).

So if you don’t see one of your legislators on this list, we’ll keep the pressure on in the coming months. You can make calls and send emails at your leisure in the next couple months, but we’ll also handpick a few legislators per week to all reach out to to keep the pressure on and bring on more co-sponsors.

For now, we’ll take a breather and celebrate this major victory.

We can’t thank you enough for your persistence on this bill.
