Big news: Our bill to close the prevailing wage loophole is moving forward in the Massachusetts Legislature.
Thanks to the hundreds of emails, calls, and personal visits from Local 17 members and our allies, the Committee on Labor and Workforce Development just favorably reported out the bill (H.1599) — sending it forward within the House of Representatives for the first time in six years.
This is a huge victory for each and every one of us. It shows that our advocacy is working. But our work isn’t done.
There are still several key votes that we’ll need to win, and we’ll need you with us every step of the way to ensure all workers on public projects earn the same prevailing wage, regardless of where the work is performed.
Please take a moment to thank our supporters, and stay tuned for more updates and ways to get involved.
