This week, CWAers in District 1 held a virtual phonebank to make phone calls to Senators to urge them to support the HEROES Act to provide relief to state and local government, premium pay for essential workers, paid leave, strengthened OSHA protections, and funding for safer voting in the 2020 elections.
This crucial bill passed the House in May, but has stalled in the Senate thanks to GOP Leader Mitch McConnell, who opposes core provisions of the bill like extended unemployment protections and aid for state and local governments.
CWA members have made thousands of calls and sent thousands of emails in support of the bill, but we need to ramp up now. Call your Senators now and urge them to support the HEROES Act: 1-877-775-9294.
