WIN FOR WORKERS

WORKERS FIRST:  Join us June 3!

On Wednesday, June 3, working people from Maryland and the District

On May 20 leaders from AFSCME Local 1072 virtually sat down with the Senator and Delegates from Maryland District 22 (Prince George’s County) to discuss ongoing health and safety issues at the University of Maryland-College Park campus.
In response to the Novel Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) outbreak, President Trump signed into law the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) which will be in effect from April 1, 2020 through December 31, 2020.

Updating wills before heading into work. Extending the lives of single-use masks. Self-isolating from their own families. These are just some of the shameful realities and conditions health care workers on the front lines of fighting the COVID-19 pandemic are facing each day.

Before the announcement early Wednesday of an unprecedented $2 trillion deal to combat the coronavirus pandemic, AFSCME President Lee Saunders and three front-line workers put pressure on federal lawmakers to come through with a robust aid package for state and local governments so they can rebuild decimated public services.

The coronavirus aid package that cleared Congress is just not good enough for public service workers. That’s the takeaway message from AFSCME President Lee Saunders.
