Congress Has More Work to Do

We know working people are the backbone of this country, and this crisis has turned the lives of our members upside down.

Some are working from home to do their part to keep our communities safe while others risk their own lives upholding the dignity of life in health care facilities with inadequate resources. Many continue to work under uncertain conditions to keep our country supplied and moving during this crisis. Some have suffered the devastating blow of a lay-off or closure.

Congress has offered some relief to folks with the last trio of bills they passed, but we know that much was missing and more is needed.

Last week, our union sent a letter to Congress, urging them to include:

Aid to Workers:

 Aid to Retirees, Companies, and the Economy:

We’ve been getting a lot of questions about how to stay safe at work if you’re considered essential and what you qualify for if you’ve lost your job because of COVID-19. To help with that, we have put together many resources for you that are being updated as we get new information. You can find those HERE.

You're keeping our nation going – doing the jobs that really matter, making the things we need the most. Please take a moment to listen to this message of gratitude from International President, Tom Conway. As Congress continues negotiations on additional stimulus bills, please be ready to act to ensure our members, and all workers, are represented and Congress includes our demands.
