Unions and public allies are coming together this week to tell Congress to protect frontline workers by requiring employers to provide protections to workers to prevent COVID-19 exposure in the workplace. You can help by making a phone call today.
The coronavirus pandemic is putting worker health in crisis. Unions and our allies are coming together to demand that frontline workers get emergency health and safety protections.
Here’s what you can do:
- Call 202-224-3121 to connect with the Capitol Hill switchboard.
Ask to be connected with your U.S. senator and/or representative.
Tell them to demand that Labor Secretary Eugene Scalia issue an Emergency Temporary Standard to protect all essential frontline workers.
Hello, I’m calling from (city, state).
I urge the Representative/Senator to call on Labor Secretary Scalia to immediately issue an emergency OSHA standard requiring all employers to provide specific and necessary protections to workers to prevent COVID-19 exposure in the workplace.
Health care workers and all essential frontline workers—including grocery, warehouse, package, delivery, transportation, and sanitation workers—have to be protected!
