Somerville Labor Coalition Action


SLC website

The Somerville Labor Coalition needs you to step up and appeal to your legislators to restore real concensus to the MA Group Health Insurance Law(GIC).What was a 70% consensus requirement has been changed to only 51%, thus allowing cities and towns to offer special treatment to larger bargaining units in order to gain concessions overall. Simple majority is not fair. Please download and read the Somerville Labor Coalition's response to the change in the law, "More Than We Bargained For".


"In Somerville, the legislatureís new health care collective bargaining laws allowed the administration to change the rules in the middle of the game, preventing municipal unions from having their voice heard and vote counted at the bargaining table. Itís not fair in sports and itís not fair in your workplace."
Stand up for fair dealing for municipal workers!
Call your legislator and ask them to do the right thing
Restore the 70% rule
Give voice to all in collective bargaining!
