State workers need a contract: Join us Feb. 13
On Thursday, Feb. 13, Gov. Chris Sununu will deliver his state of the state address, and starting at 12 p.m. we will deliver our own message: State employees need a contract now! We’re planning an informational picket outside the State House and we need you to be there.
The governor has stood in the way of getting a fair deal for state employees long enough – we need to build support for a fair deal in the Legislature. We’ll have talking points and leaflets to hand out along with buttons and stickers to allow lawmakers to show their support. We can’t do this without you – will you commit to joining us? You can RSVP using this form.
Note: If this is during your regular work hours, you must file for leave to attend.
INFORMATIONAL PICKET FOR A NEW STATE CONTRACT
DATE: Thursday, Feb. 13
TIME: 12-12:30 p.m.
LOCATION: Outside of the State House, Concord
RSVP: Let us know you’ll be there!
