IBEW 2222 has been working to organize the legislative staff at the Massachusetts State House. Presently, legislative staff are not included in the list of public employees permitted to unionize under the Massachusetts Labor Relations Act, though employees in the executive and judicial branches are.
The staff reached out to us in 2019 to discuss the possibility of forming a union. We continued working with them throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, and shortly after the State House reopened last year, we reached a strong majority of Senate staff who signed cards wishing to join the MA State House Employee Union @BeaconHillUnion, represented by IBEW 2222. We then began collecting cards from House staff, and continue to work toward a majority in that chamber.
Yesterday, Senator John Keenan @SenJohnFKeenanand Representative Patrick Kearney @RepKearneyfiled bills to extend collective bargaining rights to MA legislative staff. This marks a critical step in our organizing effort. The legislation, An Act to collective bargaining rights for legislative employees, simply provides the legislative staff the same right as every other worker in the Commonwealth, the right to decide for themselves whether or not they would like to organize.
Please help us support the family of our Union Brother Jim Karos. Jim was unfortunately diagnosed with liver cancer in October and has a tough fight ahead of him. Our goal is to ease the financial burden on his wife Claire and his daughters as they care for Jim.
