Draft Agenda:

Action Alert:
Tuesday, June 4th UFCW 21 grocery workers are organizing a Community Leaflet and Canvass action in a neighborhood grocery store at Safeway, 1275 E Sunset Dr, Bellingham, 98266.
Action:
4:30 to 5:30: Leaflet in front of store

At this location, members will pair up with a community supporter to leaflet & canvass. Our goal is to have at least 8 teams of 2 for Safeway.

Maybe your organization wants to adopt a store for an action? Or perhaps you can put out the call to your members/staff to come to different actions depending on their location.

Fair Time is coming up! We need to organize.

Discuss showing the new documentary Labor Wars of the Northwest in Whatcom County, September.

Discussion of next steps to ANSWERING ANACORTES: Washington’s Proposed New Refinery Safety Regulation 

 ANSWERING ANACORTES:
Among other improvements, the proposed revision will require:
• Modern engineering and management practices
• Strong worker participation rights
• Documentation of all safety decisions
• Procedures to learn from near misses; and
• Clear timelines to implement corrective actions.

Time for Action
L&I will hold public hearings about the new PSM regulation this summer. The hearings will be well attended by WSPA representatives. It is essential that Washingtonians attend the hearings and step forward in support of a strong regulation.

L&I will post the hearing dates at https://www.lni.wa.gov/Safety/Rules/WhatsNew/Calendar.asp.  You can also submit written comments to L&I by emailing Tari Enos at: shii235@LNI.WA.GOV.
Please let us know if you’ll be attending a hearing or want to help by emailing:
stephaniec@bluegreenalliance.org. We’ll provide you with an update on the regulation and the coalition’s talking points.

In solidarity,

Janet McKinney
