Take Action

Support Covid-19 Protections for manufacturing & factory workers

 

Rep. Pete Capano is sponsoring legislation to protect workers and we need to help to get it passed. 

 

The bill, H. 4738 An act relative to manufacturing and factory worker protection, would protect workers by requiring employers to:

  • Grant at least 14 days of paid sick leave for anyone reporting potential Covid-19 symptoms or in close contact, even if testing is limited or while awaiting results
  • Employ trained medical professionals to privately screen employees 
  • Ensure distancing, provide PPE, and disinfect facilities between shifts
  • Establishes a procedure for closing a shop that is deemed unsafe for workers

How YOU can help:

 

*****BY 5pm FRIDAY, JUNE 5th*****

 

Submit a video testimony through this link H.4738 - submit testimony

-OR- 

Submit written testimony via email to [email protected] and  [email protected]

 

Sample Script:  “My name is _______. I live in ______, MA. I support bill H. 4738 because ________.

EXAMPLES: “I’m worried about getting my family sick from going to work.” “I take care of an elderly parent and don’t want to expose them.“I am at high risk and I am afraid I’ll get sick at work”

After you’ve submitted your testimony, let your steward know!

We need all Local 201 members, retirees, and friends to write their State Reps and State Senators and ask for their support on this bill. There is a very short window of time. Please go to https://actionnetwork.org/letters/protect-manufacturing-and-factory-workers-during-the-covid-19-emergency/  today and sign the letter to tell your elected officials to stand up for our safety!

The workers at the General Electric plant in Lynn, MA have launched a protest to demand that the company fix appalling safety conditions at the facility and allow workers to manufacture the life-saving ventilators the whole country so desperately needs.
