“Food workers from farm workers to processing, warehouse, and retail are still on the job providing essential services even as COVID-19 spreads. Yet, employers are still refusing to provide workers with basic protections, putting workers’ lives at risk every day.
“It is unconscionable that OSHA has refused to issue mandatory health and safety standards for employers that require companies to protect frontline food chain workers and other workers at risk. Without these requirements, companies can continue to evade responsibility for worker deaths and exposure to illness.
Please sign this petition from the Food Chain Workers Alliance calling on Congress to protect workers and compel OSHA to act: bit.ly/ProtectFoodWorkersNow As always, for maximum impact, pick up the phone and call your members of Congress about this issue after you sign the petition.
