Right now Senators and Representatives at the Massachusetts State House are considering changing or eliminating the time and one half pay retail and grocery workers receive on Sundays and Holidays. The Senate President and Speaker of the House need to hear from you! Please make two quick phone calls to help protect time and one half pay.
Call the two numbers below and ask to leave a message both for Senate President Harriette Chandler and Speaker of the House Robert Deleo. If you receive an answering machine, please leave a message, and if it is busy try back in a few minutes. You can leave a message after business hours as well. It is crucial that they hear how important preserving time and a half on Sunday is for you, your family and your community.
Senate President Harriette Chandler: 617 – 722 – 1500
Speaker of the House Robert Deleo: 617 – 722 – 2500
Here is an example of a script to use:
I would like to leave a message for the (Senate President / Speaker). My name is (First and Last) and I am a retail worker who lives in (City or Town), Massachusetts. I want to urge leadership not to change or eliminate time and a half pay on Sundays and Holidays for current and future retail and grocery workers. This pay is vital to all of us who work in this industry. Thank you.
