Use the Defense Production Act to Protect Frontline Professionals and Those They Care For

  • 27 March 2020

Dear Lawmakers,

Healthcare workers and patients don’t have the proper CDC recommended safety equipment to protect us from COVID-19. We care for patients who are infected with the COVID-19 virus every day, often with inadequate protective equipment, masks that have been reused for days or no protective equipment at all. This is not only a danger to healthcare professionals working on the front lines, but a danger to patients and their families both with and without the virus.

Letter to OPEIU Members Regarding COVID-19

  • 18 March 2020
Sisters and Brothers: 

As the United States and nations throughout the globe are facing concerns related to the new coronavirus known as COVID-19, I feel it's important to speak directly to all OPEIU members and share the following information. 

OPEIU is taking very seriously this pandemic and its impact on our members and the industries in which they work. We are working with our local leaders throughout the country to put in place protocols to ensure we best serve our members and your needs during this crisis. We are also following directives given to businesses and organizations from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO). OPEIU staff and leadership have taken several steps to limit potential exposure, including instituting a travel ban and restrictions according to potential geographic threat levels, restrictions on modes of transportation, and the instituting of a remote work policy when possible.
