Watch the City Council Meeting on Monday, June 29th
Make Your Voice Heard!

GAAR & CARNM are working with other business organizations to stop the Premium Pay and Paid Sick Leave Ordinances set for vote on Monday, June 29th at the Albuquerque City Council Meeting. 

These ordinances would force Albuquerque businesses to pay significant dollars at a time when they are struggling to stay open resulting in more business closures and lost jobs!

Tell City Councilors to vote NO to O-25 & O-26!

1. Submit a Comment to the City Council Meeting
Your comment will be shared with all City Councilors during the meeting. Tell them you are against Premium Pay O-26 and Paid Sick Leave O-25. Use this link to submit your comment:

Must be submitted by 2pm on Monday June 29

Help show our strength when we gather with other business organizations and the community to tell City Council these ordinances are out of step with the current environment.
