to save call center jobs
Since 2006, we’ve lost nearly 40,000 call center jobs in New York. 150 of our members in Syracuse are seeing their jobs shipped to Florida. We have a chance this year to pass the NY State Call Center Jobs Act, a bill that will help make sure good jobs stay in our communities - but we need you to take action to get it passed.
CLICK HERE to send a quick email to your Assemblymember to ask them to support the bill and keep our communities strong!
(The link contains a sample email and will let you know who your Assemblymember is - all you have to do is put your name and address in)
The bill will work to stop jobs being out of state by ending grants, loans, and tax breaks for companies that ship 30% or more of their annual call volume out of New York, and it’s already passed in the NY State Senate by a huge majority, 58-3. Now we need to make it happen in the Assembly.
Our legislators have outright told us how much they want to hear from us - our calls and emails have a huge impact, so it’s important that every one of us takes two minutes to send a quick email (again, all you need to do is click a couple of buttons).
