Local 201 Bargaining Committee and Ametek Reach Tentative Legacy Agreement

Take Action

After months of watching the U.S. Senate leadership stall on bills to protect working families, it's clear that we MUST win a pro-worker Senate in order to achieve real legislative victories to strengthen our rights and get working families relief during the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. The Georgia Senate runoff elections are our chance to do just that!

If Rev. Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff win, Mitch McConnell will lose control of the Senate. That means Republicans will no longer be able to block things like a federal stimulus, the PRO Act, or many other desperately needed reforms.

Sign up to phone bank for Tuesday December 22nd, Tuesday December 29th, and/or Monday January 4th, from 6-8pm.

  • 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
