6:00pm-8:30pm (Training at 5:30)
For half a century now, North Carolina General Statute 95-98 has denied our public employees - our teachers, firefighters, sanitation workers, police officers, et al. - the ability to bargain a contract with their employer, essentially outlawing democracy at work.
This Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday evenings, supporters of collective bargaining rights will be calling registered voters who have been identified as likely supporters of workers rights, and who live in certain key state legislative districts. We will be asking these voters to contact their elected official about the repeal of 95-98, and to take other steps in their communities to advance the movement for collective bargaining rights.
Phone banking will occur at the North Carolina Justice Center in Raleigh. If you can't make it to Raleigh, you can participate from anywhere in the state - all you need is a phone (land-line or cell) and a computer with a fast internet connection. Calling will take place from 6:00pm-8:30pm, with a training on how to use the system at 5:30pm.
Everyday public employees deliver for the people of our state. It's time for our elected leaders to value their hard work by repealing NCGS 95-98 and standing up for democracy on the job. This coming week, spend an evening of solidarity with public employees by participating in Phone Banking for Collective Bargaining.
