Essential Workers Day of Action

TDU members are joining unions and organizations nationwide to fight for an Essential Workers Bill of Rights, including hazard pay and workplace safety protections.

ew_thumb.pngRight now, millions of essential workers are out on the frontlines of the COVID-19 crisis saving lives.  

But instead of giving us what we need, essential workers are being placed in high-risk conditions without appropriate equipment, safety standards, or job protections. Nonunion workers have it worst of all.

Very soon, Congress will introduce the next economic recovery bill. They have a HUGE opportunity to protect essential workers but we need to be as loud as we can.

Join Local 804 members and over 75 local and national organizations by taking action today.
