Next week is April 28, Workers Memorial Day. In his executive order, President Biden set March 15 as the deadline to determine the need for emergency worker protections from COVID.
Sickness and death confirm the need. Workers have waited long enough.
Please sign on to this letter, developed by National COSH and Oxfam America, to President Biden and Secretary Walsh, urging them to issue a COVID Emergency Temporary Standard by Wednesday, April 28 at 4pm ET / 1pm PT. The sign on form is under the letter. (A Spanish version will be ready by Monday, 4/26). We will release the letter to the press on Thursday, 4/29.
- Invite your colleagues and network to sign the letter.
- Share a link to the letter at your Workers Memorial events – a fitting action — fighting for the living, as we mourn the dead.
