An effective and easy way to reach your state legislators about making workplace bullying illegal

Sad businesswoman

Posting about the workplace anti-bullying Healthy Workplace Bill, Senate Bill 1013, on state legislators’ Facebook pages has proven extremely effective because of the public nature of it. (Legislators see your posts directly without your messages getting buried and want to be publicly responsive to get votes in their re-elections.)

So we need your help.

Post on your own legislators’ walls if they haven’t yet supported the bill (or post on all of their walls if you’d like — many will respond in this case even if you’re not in their districts, and others will learn about the bill, too).

Let’s get a buzz going in the State House.

The singlemost important action you can take during this crunch time to get anti-workplace bullying legislation passed in Massachusetts

In this second year of the two-year legislative session, we have just a few more months to get the anti-workplace bullying Healthy Workplace Bill (H 1771) passed before we have to start at the beginning of the process in January 2017.

We’re stuck at the Third Reading in the House. Legislators aren’t making this bill a priority. That’s where you come in.

In the next two weeks, we urgently need you to schedule a meeting with your State Rep at the State House or locally. Your State Rep holds office hours at both the State House and in your district. Rather than simply call or email, meet with him or her face-to-face and ask him or her to help make the Healthy Workplace Bill, H 1771, a priority. Ask for help with contacting Chairman of Bills & Third Reading Theodore Speliotis to ask him to release House Bill 1771 for Third Reading.

We have a great shot at getting this bill passed this session if we urge our State Reps to make this bill a priority. Share this post to help spread the word to get more Massachusetts residents to contact their State Reps about this bill.
