Attached is information regarding ESSB-5065, legislation known as the “Safe Leave Act for Washington State Railroad Workers”, currently in the Washington State House – Rules Committee. In order for this legislation to be passed by the entire State House of Representatives, it must be moved from the Committee to the House floor calendar for a vote. Time is of the essence to voice your opinion with your Representatives regarding the need for this legislation so please contact your Representatives as soon as possible!
As this is pertinent to Members who reside in the State of Washington, please distribute to your Divisions located there. Divisions 58, 104, 238, 402, 518 and 758 should be our focus for this message. As usual, I will follow with a link to a text for distribution in that manner as well. As always, thank you all for your dedication to keeping the Membership informed!
