Attend local legislative town hall meetings

town-hall-microphoneMany Washington state legislators will be holding town hall meetings and constituent listening sessions around Washington state starting this weekend.

The Washington State Labor Council, AFL-CIO is urging union members and community supporters to attend their local events and urge their lawmakers to support pro-working family legislation — like the House-approved paid safe and sick days bill and the package of legislation to combat wage theft — and to oppose anti-labor legislation that has emerged from the Republican-controlled Senate. (See the latest WSLC Legislative Update newsletter for a list of those bills.)

Here is a list of upcoming town hall meeting that we are aware of. If you don’t see them on the list, check with your local legislators to see if they have one planned this weekend or sometime soon.
