Thanks to the tremendous work of Local 117's Teresita Torres and the courage and determination of leadership in the House, HB1490 interest arbitration for correctional employees has been redirected to the Rules Committee and will likely be headed to the House floor for a vote soon.
This is great news. It means that the bill is still very much alive, but to get HB1490 passed out of the House, all correctional employees and their supporters must take action now.
DON’T WAIT! TAKE ACTION NOW! Call the Legislative Hotline at 1-800-562-6000 and tell your representatives in the House to pass HB 1490 interest arbitration for correctional employees! This is the moment when all 16,000 members of Local 117 must call to voice their support of the bill. Call now!
