Come Out to Support YES on 1

yes-on-1Today in Massachusetts hospitals, there is no law and no limit to guide the number of patients that can be assigned to a nurse at one time (aside from the ICU). Massachusetts hospitals are facing deteriorating patient care conditions, leading to more complications, readmissions, and errors, as well as longer hospital stays and real life-threatening risks.

The Patient Safety Act will dramatically improve patient safety in Massachusetts hospitals by setting a safe maximum limit on the number of patients assigned to a nurse at one time, while providing flexibility to adjust nurses’ patient assignments based on specific patient needs.

2222’s Own Paul Feeney for State Senate

PaulFeeney-StateSenate-RGB-02.new size

IBEW 2222’s own Paul Feeney, now State Senator Paul Feeney, is running for re-election for State Senate in Bristol & Norfolk County.  Paul has worked tirelessly for our membership and has brought that same work ethic to the Statehouse, fighting tirelessly for working families.

Paul has a substantial record in politics, having served as a Foxboro Selectman, Senator James Timilty’s Chief of Staff, Labor Director for Congressman Stephen Lynch’s campaign, state director in both Massachusetts and Connecticut for Senator Bernie Saunders Presidential campaign, and currently serves in the Massachusetts Senate representing the Bristol & Norfolk district. He is the Chair of the Joint Committee on Public Service, Vice-Chair of the Joint Committee on Public Health and serves on the Joint Committee on Consumer Protection and Professional Licensure.

Regular working-class people in our communities deserve a voice in the Massachusetts Senate. Since getting sworn in last year, I have worked hard in a bi-partisan way to improve our neighborhoods, address sky-rocketing healthcare costs, fight for our schools, protect our environment, provide for our veterans and seniors and give a voice to working people.  I’ve been able to deliver for the people of our district because I never let politics get in the way of progress.

Senator Paul Feeney.

Support Continues for our Locked-Out Brothers & Sisters – Medford Garage at Wellington Circle

medford - wellington cir

National Grid has locked out our neighbors and friends. These are women and men trying to support their families. Yet this greedy corporation has refused to allow them to work and they are not bargaining in good faith. This shameful practice has got to be publicized. Please use social media to call out National Grid to end this lockout and put these hard-working women and men back to work.
