Hotdogs and Hotlines - special session legislative events have started

Local 443 member Defrance Clarke at local's Public Service Recognition Week booth May 4 that generated hotline calls to "Blow the whistle on contracting out."

“Hotdogs and Hotline” events to generate hotline phone calls to blow the whistle on contracting out and to support your issues in the special legislative session have started.

The aim is to take the fight to worksites statewide. The schedule so far is below and posted online at

If you want an event at your worksite, call Brandon Anderson at 1-800-562-6002.

AND….Don’t forget to keep calling legislators to oppose the expansion of contracting out in the budget, HB 1087, or in other legislation.

Call 1-800-562-6000:  Tell your legislators to respect and retain the current law on your contracting out rights. Contracting out is a cop out when there’s billions in tax loopholes to close.
