Take Action

Please read the following from Debbie Hayes, CWA D-1 Area Director:  

On November 6, 2018 (election day), the State of Massachusetts will conduct a ballot initiative related to safe patient limits.  Unlike New York, they are able to put the question of safe staffing directly to the voters in the State.  The Massachusetts Nurses Association has been working a Ballot Campaign for Safe Patient Limits.

Between May 7 and June 13, 2018 the ballot activists have to collect thousands of signatures and have to drop literature related to their effort and they need our help!

We are going to send members down to help with signature collection and literature drops.  The details are not finalized yet, but the dates will be May 31 and June 1, 2018.  The group will probably head to Massachusetts at 6:00 am on May 31, arrive in enough time to work for a few hours and then have dinner.  On June 1, we would work until about 2:00 pm and then drive home.  Our healthcare worker SIF can cover lost time wages for two days, mileage and a per diem.

Not only will we be helping our sisters and brothers make safe staffing the law in Massachusetts, we will be helping to move the New York effort along as well.

For additional information or to register, please RSVP by May 25, 2018 to the Buffalo Area Office at 716-824-2042. 

Photo from our Safe Staffing Rally in Niagara Square on May 17th. Thank you to Senator Chris Jacobs for signing on to co-sponsor the Safe Staffing for Quality Care Act. Staffing ratios are the #1 issue among our members. This legislation must be moved out of the Health Committee and brought to the NYS Senate floor for a vote NOW! Thank you to everyone who made this event happen! Now, let's get this done!

Thank you, Erie County Legislator Pat Burke, for stopping by CWA Local 1133 with a Proclamation for National Nurses' Week!
