TransPerfect employees pushing for legislation
Citizens for a Pro-Business Delaware, a group of employees of TransPerfect and business people, are mounting a summer campaign to pass legislation to make it harder to break up companies.
The group has hired KOFA Public Affairs of Baltimore to run the Delaware campaign, which will begin this week. The group will lobby by direct mail, newspaper ads, door knocking, visits to elected officials and canvassing at public events, including tables at the upcoming Delaware State Fair.
“There are hundreds of employees who live in fear that a good, steady job will come to an end this summer. It is our mission to stand up for each and every one of them. This summer, we have an aggressive campaign of radio, newspaper ads, canvassing, traditional lobbying, and other means to ensure that everyone has a voice,” said Chris Coffey, campaign manager for Citizens for Pro-Business Delaware. “We are excited to have added KOFA Public Affairs to help develop and execute a ground game this summer which ensures our legislation has the best chance of success. They know Delaware and will join Patrick Allen on a great statewide team.”
The new legislation would impact companies like TransPerfect, which has recorded more than $500 million in sales and has 4,000 full-time employees and operates from over 100 offices worldwide.
