Take Action

Essential public-sector workers we all depend on are on the front lines of exposure to this virus. Please ask your State Representative and State Senator to support H.4631, “An Act Relative State Employees Performing Core Functions”, filed by Rep. Tackey Chan (member of SAG-AFTRA).  

This pandemic has laid bare how intertwined public health and the economy are – and how absolutely vital working people are to keeping every family safe, secure, healthy, and fed. Please ask your State Representative and State Senator to support HD5031 - An Act providing hazard pay for essential workers in the COVID-19 emergency, filed by Rep. Maria Robinson. 

Essential workers are on the frontlines of this pandemic. Occupational presumption legislation would ensure that any essential worker reporting to work outside their home who contracts coronavirus is presumed to have gotten it from exposure at work. 

We are asking that you contact your state Rep. and State Senator and ask them to co-sponsor and support HD.5071. This legislation would provide vital on the job protections for all workers in factories and manufacturing. 

We urge the Senate to amend SB2695 to add “industry” to the demographic data to be collected. We need information about both occupation and industry to characterize risk and protect workers, especially as the state is planning to reopen the state to all nonessential workers.

Working people are desperate for our leaders to put partisanship aside and do what is right for our health, our economy and our country. Tell your Senator to support the HEROES Act (H.R. 6800) and provide the relief working families need.
