Call 800-584-6813 to Support Paid Sick Days

1896 telephone
While paid sick days passed in Philadelphia in June, the Mayor vetoed it soon after. Right now we have a small window of time to override his veto. City Council will once again have to vote on the bill by Thursday, September 15th.

In order for the override to be possible members of Council need to hear from supporters. The Coalition has created an 800 number that anyone can call to be connected with City Council. Before the call is put through there will be a short message you can listen to for information about what you can say and you will have the option to call one of five members. After you place that call you are welcome to call any of the other Council members as well.

The number is 800-584-6813.

Please make this call today and share the number with others. If you can send it out to your members please do so. City Council spoke for the people of Philadelphia when they passed the paid sick days bill. Don’t let the Mayor silence us with his veto – call City Council today and let them know that Philadelphians want and deserve paid sick days.

Also, we will be at City Council on Thursday, September 15th to show them in person that we want paid sick days. Please come out to City Hall at 9:30 and help us remind them of what the people want.
