Help Fight HB 216
Feb 02, 2023

Sisters and Brothers,

Amendments have been proposed to HB216 and we need to get further messages into the House State Administration committee stating our continued opposition to both the bill and the amendments. 

Please ask union members to email or call the members of the House State Administration Committee TODAY to ask them to VOTE NO on the amendment AND VOTE NO on HB 216.  

Please activate members across the state but messages from members in the following House Districts should be prioritized:

Rep. Courtenay Sprunger - HD 7 - Kalispell

Rep. Tony Brockman - HD 9 - Evergreen

Rep. Kenneth Walsh - HD 71 - Ennis, Twin Bridges

Rep. Gary Parry - HD 39 - Huntley, Forsyth, Colstrip

Rep. Julie Dooling, Chair - HD 70 - Townsend

Rep. Marta Bertoglio - HD 75 - Boulder, Clancy, Whitehall

Rep. Paul Green - HD 41 - Lame Deer, Busby, Lyola, Broadus

This bill is still an ongoing fight we need to stop. The House State Administration Committee has heard HB 216 to "revise laws related to public employees and labor organizations."

Here are some facts about HB216:

  • Adds unnecessary verbiage to MT policy by stating what is already in practice: public employees are not required to be in a union

  • Requires union members to sign up for the union every year

Please email the members of the House State Administration Committee before Tuesday to ask them to DO NOT PASS HB 216 and thank them for their service. Please keep your email brief and respectful.

THANK YOU for standing up for Montana's middle class!
