SEIU 721 Retirees Newsletter – Spring 2020

SEIU 721 President Bob Schoonover Issues Statement On Impact of Coronavirus Outbreak on Frontline Healthcare Professionals and Other Public Employees

SEIU 721 has received reports of members’ concerns regarding exposure to the novel Coronavirus across the various city and county facilities that we represent. In this rapidly developing situation, public facilities must be prepared to prevent and contain the virus. Staying up-to-date on the latest CDC guidelines and recommendations from health experts is critical —and facilities must be proactive in their prevention and management practices.
Our union is actively working with employers to ensure facilities and worksites have the equipment and supplies they need, that workers are trained in the right protocols for their job and workplace, and that they are appropriately staffed.
