Tell Council YES for Earned Sick Time


Almost there!! There is enormous support for Earned Sick Time in Philadelphia, but the Chamber of Commerce is fighting it tooth and nail. We need you to come out and show Council your support for the Promoting Healthy Families and Workplaces Act (Bill 080474).

Earned Sick Time is a basic worker's right to accrue sick time for use when sick or when a dependent is sick. This bill will effect over 200,000 workers in Philadelphia who currently do not have such a right, the majority of whom are women working in the healthcare and food service industries. With Earned Sick Time, these workers will not have to choose between getting better or getting paid. Find out more at

Please call your District Councilmember and at-Large Members Bill Green, James Kenney, and Frank Rizzo, as well as Mayor Nutter TODAY and ask for their support of the bill.

Mayor Nutter at 888-892-2110
Councilman Bill Green at (215) 686-3420 or (215) 686- 3421
Councilman James Kenney at (215) 686-3450 or (215) 686-3451
