CWA Healthcare Workers on the Front Lines of the COVID-19 Crisis

CWA's 24,000 healthcare workers are on the front lines of the COVID-19 crisis. Hospitalizations are soaring, and facilities are suffering from extreme shortages of protective equipment, ventilators, tests, and healthcare staff. They face the highest probability of repeat exposure to the virus that causes COVID-19 and their lives are at risk.

On Saturday, CWA Local 1104's Lavita Thompson Payton and CWA Local 1168's Sarah Buckley gave intense, moving interviews on CNN and MSNBC about the desperate shortage of protective equipment for healthcare workers, and the need for the President Trump to use the full force of the National Defense Production Act to get equipment produced now.
