Statement from AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka on the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) issuing a COVID-19 emergency temporary standard (ETS) for health care workers:
Fifteen months into this pandemic, health care workers will finally have enforceable OSHA protections that will require their employers to provide prevention measures to keep them safe from COVID-19 at work. Labor Secretary Marty Walsh should be commended for taking this overdue step to care for the workers who care for us.
OPEIU is proud to honor Pride Month 2021 by once again committing to the fight for justice alongside our LGBTQIA+ family, both in and out of the workplace. LGBTQIA+ rights are workers' rights.
