Co-Chaired by SEIU Local 509 president Susan Tousignant, Raise Up Massachusetts is a coalition of more than 100 labor, faith, and community organizations working to place the minimum wage and earned sick time on the November 2014 ballot. If passed, we will raise living standards for more than a million working families in Massachusetts — including thousands of child care providers and human service workers represented by Local 509.
Human service workers have always fought to improve the quality of life for the clients and communities we serve. And with our help collecting the 200,000 signatures needed to place these measures on the ballot, we can win a real victory for all Bay State workers.
It’s time to take action — to Raise Up Massachusetts. Here are a few ways human service workers can get involved in the fight:
- Sign up to collect signatures to place the Minimum Wage and Earned Sick Time on the 2014 ballot.
- Attend a RaiseUpMA event in your neighborhood or a nearby community.
- Stay up to date with the latest RaiseUpMA activities on Facebook and Twitter.
