STOP SB 14 | PROTECT WATER BREAKS FOR WORKERS
Senate Bill 14 is up for a House vote on Tuesday, May 25th. SB 14 would eliminate local water break ordinances passed by the cities of Dallas (2015) and Austin (2010) and prevent other cities in Texas from ever passing similar workplace safety ordinances. These ordinances guarantee construction workers 10 minutes of rest for every 4 hours of work.
Texas is the deadliest construction industry in the country. A construction worker dies every three days.
Water breaks save lives and are a basic human right.
Help us protect workers and save lives by writing to every member of the Texas House of Representatives and urging them vote NO on SB 14 and stand with workers rather than stripping their rights away.
