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 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:

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:

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.

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.


Share your workplace bullying story. Email to info@mahealthyworkplace.com in one page along with an optional photo:

Where did you work and what did you do?
How did the bullying begin? What tactics were used?
How did you feel?
How did it escalate?
How did your employer react (or not react)?
What was the impact on you?
What was the impact on the organization?
Why do you want workplace bullying legislation to pass?
What advice do you have for others going through bullying at work?

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.

As always, we thank you for your dedication to this cause.

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.

Here’s who signed onto SD 1355, an act addressing workplace bullying, mobbing, and harassment, without regard to protected class status:

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.

Know your voice matters.

We just a broke record for workplace abuse legislation co-sponsors in Massachusetts — and we’re not done

The most legislators we’ve ever signed on in one session is 58. We’re now at 69. And the cosponsor deadline is today at 5pm.

We can’t thank you enough. 


Your calls, emails, and visits are making a difference and creating a buzz around the State House. That’s no ordinary accomplishment. And this level of support is a powerful message going into this two-year legislative session that we want protections for targets of workplace abuse — and we won’t back down until we get them.

We have until the end of the day to call and email again to put the pressure on legislators to make this bill a priority.

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.

We thank you again for your persistence on this bill, knowing that bills most often take years to pass.

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.
 

We have 5 days left to sign on co-sponsors for workplace abuse legislation

Our calls and emails are working! Thank you for all of your calls and emails to urge state legislators to sign onto SD 1355, an act addressing workplace bullying, mobbing, and harassment, without regard to protected class status. These 24 legislators have signed on so far (58 legislators is the most we’ve signed on in one session):

Senator Paul Feeney (D-Walpole) Lead Sponsor

Legislators can sign on to SD 1355 until this Friday, February 1 — a little less than a week away. (Then we’ll get a new bill number that we’ll use to promote the bill for the rest of the two-year session.)

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
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.
Join us for a Lobby Day on Wednesday
What makes even more of a difference is meeting with your legislators, allowing them to put a person and a story behind the cause. And we can meet as a group to make it easier on you and more impactful on the legislator.
Call your State Rep AND State Senator and ask whoever answers the phone if you can setup an appointment with your legislator this Wednesday, January 30 between 11am-1pm at the State House. (If they don’t have any time between those hours available, try to get an appointment sometime in the afternoon close to 1pm).
Email info@mahealthyworkplace.com with your name, legislator name, and meeting time. If you can’t get an appointment that day or at all, feel free to join us anyways and still RSVP so we can send you the location where we’ll all meet at 11am.We’ll join you at the meeting as a group and take care of everything else (figuring out their office location, navigating the State House, and bringing flyers).

You can also join us if your legislators have signed on or you’ve already asked them. Email info@mahealthyworkplace.com to RSVP and for the meeting location.
Thanks for your persistence on this bill, knowing that bills most often take years to pass.

Paid FMLA Listening Sessions
Massachusetts passed the most comprehensive Paid Family and Medical Leave legislation in the country last year. Now it’s time for Paid Leave to be put into action. The newly-created Department of Family and Medical Leave will hold public listening sessions across the state about the regulations being drafted.

It’s important supporters attend these sessions to ensure the regulatory process does not weaken the law in any way. RSVP to a hearing in your community and make your voice heard as these regulations are being drafted.
