As the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic continue to unfold, CWA members are fighting to ensure that the health, safety, and financial security of working people are not ignored in favor of policies that would only benefit the 1%.
CWA's COVID-19 information page includes action items on expanding paid family leave, increasing production of personal protective equipment, and more.
The page also contains resources on the recently passed federal legislation that mandates paid sick days and paid family leave in some COVID-19 related situations and expands unemployment benefits. The AFL-CIO has posted a state-by-state guide to assistance available to working people who have been impacted by the pandemic. It is available at https://aflcio.org/covid-19/state-resources.
