Via the Seattle Coalition for a Healthy Workforce:
Thanks to months of collaboration between local businesses and community organizations, and thousands of emails, postcards and phone calls from paid sick days supporters, the Seattle City Council will officially consider a paid sick days ordinance this summer!
This is a major step forward – we now have a chance to make paid sick days as basic as the 40-hour work week and the minimum wage here in Seattle. But it’s important we keep up the pressure for action.
Please take a moment now to urge the Seattle City Council to vote on paid sick days this August.
The proposed paid sick days ordinance is backed by 75+ local organizations in the Seattle Coalition for a Healthy Workforce, and a growing list of local small business owners – many of whom helped write the ordinance.
But the City Council is already hearing from deep-pocketed interests lobbying against paid sick days. That’s why your message to the Council matters so much.
Tell the Seattle City Council why paid sick days matter to you and your family – and urge them to take action on paid sick days this August.
With paid sick days, you don’t have to choose between leaving a sick child at home alone or losing a day’s pay…or even your job. But 190,000 people working in Seattle don’t have that option – that’s 40% of the private-sector workforce!
You can help ensure everyone working in Seattle has paid sick days – please urge the Seattle City Council to vote on paid sick days this August.
Thank you for your support!
