We are all in this together during the COVID-19 crisis

We hope you’re staying safe and healthy during this stressful time. Many of our members work in healthcare, homeless services, credit unions, insurance companies, trade unions and other essential services that are continuing to operate despite the shelter-in-place orders in California. We appreciate all you’re doing to keep our families and communities safe, and we’re committed to doing all we can to safeguard the health and safety of our members during this difficult time. Together, we’ll get through this.

We are advocating for both employers and local, state, and federal governments to provide paid leave for those who are being sent home, laid off, or need to be home with their families due to the COVID-19 crisis. For those who continue to work, Cal/OSHA guidelines require your employer to provide you with the protective equipment you need to perform your job. We’re in communication with employers to assure they’re keeping you safe and negotiate over temporary or just in time policies to protect workers’ rights. The labor community has united and we all are working together to ensure the federal government takes care of workers and their families first and not big business.
