Tell Trump: Use the National Defense Production Act to Protect Essential Workers NOW!
Nurses and other CWA-represented healthcare and essential workers are on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic. As cases soar, hospitals and other health care institutions are running out of N95 respirators, surgical masks, protective gowns, latex gloves, and other protective equipment that is absolutely essential to keep healthcare workers safe from this virus. These shortages mean that essential workers do not have the protection they need on the job.
The bottom line is that more people will be infected and healthcare workers and patients will die if workers don’t get the protective equipment they need to keep themselves and their patients safe.
President Trump has the power to protect us by using the National Defense Production Act to its fullest extent and ensure that workers have the equipment they need to deal with this crisis. But he keeps stalling.
