Worker's Rights

Throughout her time at Attorney General, Martha has forged a strong relationship with organized labor, and stood alongside them as they have fought for the rights of workers in Massachusetts. Protecting the rights of workers and working families is critical to reducing income inequality and ensuring that everyone can share in economic growth and prosperity. Because of her record, including recovering tens of millions in restitution for workers and spearheading the Commonwealth’s landmark human trafficking law, as well as her firm commitment to continuing to fight for workers’ rights as Governor, Martha is proud to have received the endorsement of some of Massachusetts’ leading labor organizations, including 1199SEIU Healthcare Workers East, IBEW 103, Teamster’s Local 25 and the New England Regional Council of Carpenters.

In order to continue to protect the rights of workers in Massachusetts, Martha will:

  • Work closely with the next Attorney General to continue to hold employers accountable for wage and hour violations, and to protect workers’ right to organize and form unions.
  • Fight for improvements, like earned sick time, that will benefit all of Massachusetts’ workers and working families.

  • Expand worker training, ESL, and ABE programs, to ensure that workers in Massachusetts’ have the right skills to take on the high-quality jobs of tomorrow.
