Brothers and Sisters,
I am proud to serve a membership that advocates for workers’ rights, fair conditions, and fair pay. Though our larger community has fought hard for these protections, many across our state and country are unfortunately facing wage theft. Regardless of occupation, geography, or any other factor, all workers deserve to be paid fairly for their labor.
Our fellow workers across the Massachusetts Building Trades Unions are fighting to support legislation that addresses this serious issue. Together, we can help ensure that this bill makes its way to the House for a vote.
I encourage you to call your state representative and leave a message with the following details. Be sure to provide your name, address, and the following: “Ask Speaker Mariano to bring Wage Theft to the House floor for a vote.” Please click this link to find details for your state representative.
Wage theft impacts thousands of workers annually, and we have an opportunity to make a difference. Thank you in advance for your attention to this important issue.
