23novAll DaySign the Petition to Pass the NY Hero Act

Event Details

Eight months into the COVID-19 pandemic and there are still no mandatory federal health and safety federal standards for workers. The second wave is here and workers are still inadequately protected from COVID-19. This means food workers continue to be at risk of contracting and spreading COVID-19 at work and bringing the virus home to their communities. We know that every day counts in keeping people safe and healthy. That is why we are urging the new York State legislature to pass the NY HERO Act as soon as possible to stop the second wave of COVID-19.

The NY HERO Act is legislation that provides mandatory safety protocols and regulations to protect workers in every industry and gives workers a stronger voice in the workplace to fight this pandemic.

We join FCWA members and a statewide coalition of unions, worker centers, community organizations, and faith groups in calling on the State Legislature to pass the NY HERO Act and make New York a national model in protecting workers and communities during this ongoing crisis.
