Covid 19 Resources
We understand that this has become a very challenging time for all of us. This page will be used to post Covid-19 information and resources useful to our Union and our workers. Please take care of yourselves and your families.
Covid Work Safety
As the COVID-19 pandemic ravages the country, working people are looking for ways to join together to form a union in our workplaces and negotiate for strong health and safety protections. Today, the AFL-CIO is launching a new web tool to raise awareness of what a safe workplace should look like and how a union can help achieve these goals.
The Am I Safe At Work website contains fundamental information to empower workers to identify key COVID-19 risks in our workplaces, provides tools to join together with co-workers for better safety protections, and guides workers on how to contact a union to help negotiate with an employer for safer working conditions. Will you take a look?
This pandemic has particularly affected women and people of color. From nurses who take care of the sick to teachers and meat processing and transit workers, every day working people are risking our lives. A key goal of the web tool is to provide information that can save lives.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, the AFL-CIO has been at the forefront of fighting for safer workplaces across our country. Once again the labor movement is stepping up, sharing key tools and resources to help working people come together and demand change during the pandemic. This website is a critical tool that empowers workers to fight for COVID-19 safety protections and prevent the spread of the coronavirus.
