PUBLIC HEARING ON JOBS AT MAXPAK
CITY HALL, 93 Highland Ave
FEBRUARY 17TH, 6PM (Rally outside @ 5:30)
Next Thursday, the Board of Aldermen will hold a public hearing about local & union jobs at MaxPak, because of the petition of CCP’s Jobs for Somerville group, which collected 50 signatures asking for local hiring at the construction of the MaxPak site.
Alderman Desmond subsequently proposed an amendment to the City’s Responsible Employer Ordinance that would, on any city-funded project (including when those city funds are state funds that get funneled through the City) give 50% of jobs to Somerville residents and 25% to women and minorities.
Please come to this hearing and support local jobs! If you are interested in testifying or if you have questions, please contact Cecily at 617-776-5931 ext 226.
