Join UFCW’s National Essential Worker Research Study

As we head into another year of working on the front lines of COVID-19, it is critical that we better understand how this pandemic has and will impact you and all our members.

For the sake of your health and safety, we believe essential workers must remain a priority when it comes to improving workplace safety, accessing life-saving vaccinations, and receiving critical resources that will save lives and stop the spread of this disease.   

To better understand how we improve workplace safety, and the impact that the pandemic has and will have, the UFCW has partnered with the University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC) and FORWARD, the national databank for rheumatic diseases, to launch a long-term, national Essential Worker Health Survey.

The Essential Worker Health Survey will help us better understand the impact the COVID-19 pandemic has had on workers and on all our families. By learning more about how this disease impacts frontline workers like you, we can learn about what steps we must take to better protect you in the workplace.
