DURHAM (AP) ó A coalition campaigning for paid sick days for all North Carolina workers will hold a town hall meeting on the issue in Durham.
The NC Paid Sick Days coalition will hold the meeting Thursday night at the Durham Public Library. Other meetings are planned later this month and in April in Durham, Fayetteville, Rocky Mount and Asheville. In late April, meetings will be held in Greenville, Wilmington, and Charlotte.
More than 30 groups are part of the coalition, which wants the state to guarantee workers throughout the state up to a maximum of seven paid sick days annually.
It supports a bill in the state House of Representatives called the Health Families and Healthy Workplaces Act that would ensure workers have paid sick time.
