DOVER, Del., June 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Citizens for a Pro-Business Delaware, originally a group made up of a core set of the 600 employees of the global translation services company TransPerfect, has now expanded to more than 1,000 members. The group now includes concerned Delaware residents, top business executives, and others, such as family members of employees that believe this case will set a dangerous precedent for businesses incorporated in Delaware.
"This is a movement that has only just begun. We will continue to spread our message that breaking up a successful, profitable company will cost hundreds or thousands of jobs for our members," said Miranda Wessinger, President of the Citizens for Pro-Business Delaware. "We have also had reports that TransPerfect employees received a mass email threatening them with termination by the Chancery Court and its appointed agents for expressing their First Amendment rights. We will not be intimidated and we will not back down. We will end this dangerous loophole so that this can never happen again."
Citizens for a Pro-Business Delaware has been organizing grassroots outreach and advertising to push the state legislature to close the legal loophole allowing courts to break up profitable companies. The group recently sent mailers to more than 10,000 Delaware households and is running a radio ad campaign to ask legislators to support a proposed bill for this issue. The group has also run digital and print ads across statewide publications and have organized phone calls to citizens to raise awareness with Delaware residents, elected officials, and other stakeholders.
