CWA ACTION ALERT: CALL YOUR LEGISLATORS NOW

Make 3 calls to protect your pension

 

The state legislature must vote to place a Constitutional Amendment to protect public worker pensions on the ballot this November. The deadline for that vote is August 9.

 

Make one call to your state senator

844-402-4286

 

You’ll be prompted to enter your zip code to connect to your legislator.

 

The State Senate has yet to take the final vote on SCR2, which would place the Constitutional Amendment in the November election. The Amendment would require quarterly pension payments, protecting taxpayers and saving billions.

 

Call your State Senator and say “Hello, my name is _____ and I live in ________. Vote yes on SCR2 to protect retirement security for public workers.”

 

 

Make one call to each of your two state assembly members

The Assembly has voted to put the amendment on the ballot. But they also voted to reduce the sales tax from 7% to 6% as part of a deal to fund roads and bridges. That won’t save working people any money, but it will cost $17 billion over the next ten years. This will harm the state’s ability to fund anything–and derail efforts to fully fund public pensions.

 

Call your State Assembly member now and say, “Hello, my name is _____ and I live in _____. I am disappointed the Assembly passed A12, which would blow a nearly $2 billion hole in the budget every year, and could bankrupt my pension fund. No sales tax reduction to fund roads and bridges.”

 

You have two Assembly members. Make sure you call this number two times!
