1199SEIU endorsed candidate for Governor Martha Coakley joined Senator Elizabeth Warren, New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, and members of the Coakley Women's Leadership Council recently to discuss the importance of providing workers with earned sick time. Coakley has consistently called for earned sick time for all workers in Massachusetts during her time as Attorney General. Meanwhile, her opponent Charlie Baker opposes Question 4 on the MA ballot, which would ensure earned sick time for hard working men and women.

The program allows members to purchase tickets to any performance without restriction for just $15. Membership is free and available through partnerships with agencies and organizations.

1199SEIU members were instrumental in getting out the vote in the Massachusetts Primary on September 9th. We boosted turnout in many regions, and as a result, Martha Coakley won by significant margins in New Bedford, Lawrence, Springfield, and more. Now, 1199SEIU members are gearing up for a strong ground effort leading up to the general election on November 4th. Both Martha Coakley and Charlie Baker were invited to our governor’s forum in March. Martha won the endorsement, but Charlie didn’t even show up. Healthcare workers are supporting Martha Coakley for Governor and voting yes on Question 4— earned sick time for all Massachusetts men and women.

As part of a Week of #WageAction, union and nonunion home care workers held a Speak out for $15 on the steps of the Massachusetts State House. After the Speak Out, home care workers and other 1199 members joined fast food workers at a protest in Downtown Crossing.
