Maryland Labor Leaders Urge State's Unions to Endorse HR 676
Baltimore, Maryland. A group Maryland labor leaders have sent a letter to every local union in the state urging support for HR 676, national single payer healthcare legislation introduced by Congressman John Conyers (D-MI).
The letter, organized by the Labor Committee of the Universal Health Care Action Network of Maryland, states, "Employer drives to cut benefits and shift costs to workers now dominate contract negotiations killing progress in wages and other benefits.… It doesn't have to be this way. We can do better." The union leaders enclose a sample resolution and urge each local union to endorse HR 676.
Signers of the letter are:
