Contract bargaining is just around the corner, and we win when we stand together. When we’re stronger in the worksite, we’re stronger at the bargaining table.

Let’s show the State we’re committed to better wages, benefits, and working conditions. 

One of the ways we demonstrate strength is Purpling Up when we’re on the job … it’s something we can all do whether we’re working from home, the office, or both.
