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
