It was lobby day at Capital Hill on April 9th, 2019.  Many of our union members and members from 32BJ, Health Care PA, SEIU and 668 took their fight for working people to our legislators.

Our members took a three part pledge to our legislators asked them to support it.

Lobby day 15  We urged moving all workers to $15 an hour, a union for all, which is called Workforce Freedom Act and Worker protection on the job. Worker protection is The Jake SchwabWorker Safety Bill.  This would expand workplace health and safety standards (OSHA) to public employees.  Public employees in Pennsylvania are not currently covered by OSHA standards.
