For our Massachusetts members!
Over the next two weeks, the Massachusetts Legislature in Boston is debating a bill that would give essential workers like you extended hazard pay for working during the COVID-19 pandemic. The bill would mandate that private sector companies in industries like grocery, food processing, healthcare, and transportation provide hazard pay for their employees during this public health crisis.
Your state legislators need to hear from essential workers like you about why this bill must pass.
In many instances, your Local Union has been able to negotiate hazard pay for the short term, but it is becoming clear that this crisis will be lasting for months, not weeks. The health risk you are facing every day at work deserves to be recognized for as long as the COVID-19 pandemic lasts.
