Join us to watch – and celebrate – as paid sick days become law in Seattle!

Tomorrow, Mayor Mike McGinn will sign Seattle’s landmark paid sick days ordinance into law. Your support helped make this moment possible – please join us for the bill signing ceremony and celebration!

Plum Bistro, 1429 12th Avenue (between Union and Pike)
2:30 p.m. Ordinance signing ceremony
3:00 p.m. Awards and Celebration

When Seattle’s paid sick days ordinance takes effect next year, tens of thousands of people working in Seattle will start earning paid sick time on the job. They won’t face the choice between losing part of their paycheck, and caring for themselves or a family member when they are sick. They’ll also have paid leave available to stay safe when dealing with domestic violence or stalking.

It’s all because of your efforts. Without your overwhelming support – from phone calls, to emails, to personal testimony – we wouldn’t be where we are today.

So please join us at Plum Bistro tomorrow to see Seattle’s paid sick days ordinance become law. Hope to see you then, and thanks for all of your hard work!
