Legislative Updates

Between the regular session that began in January and the three special sessions that were held over the course of the past year, 2021 saw plenty of legislative action and developments. As we noted in our post-session recap back in May, this was undoubtedly one of the most difficult legislative sessions in quite some time for working families. Through multiple bills, the Republican supermajority made it abundantly clear that it is pro-business and anti-worker.

Once again, we'd like to draw your attention to a couple of important items before we dive into this week's legislative update.

Before we dive into this week's legislative update, we'd like to take a moment to once again mourn the sudden, tragic, and heartbreaking loss of CWA Local 3808 President Debbie Sisco and her daughter, Marie, earlier this week. Like many of you, we are still in shock and disbelief over what has happened. No amount of words can truly express our grief. Debbie was an integral and irreplaceable part of our Tennessee labor movement, and her passing leaves a massive void in our union family.
