Protecting Ourselves & Our Families Has Become the New Normal
The year 2020 will go down for many of us as the worst year of our lives, in good part due to the pandemic. 2021 has brought hope that by the end of the summer, we will be vaccinated and may start to get back to normal. However, Covid has been unpredictable, so we should all expect the unexpected. More importantly, we need to keep up our good work protecting ourselves and each other until restrictions are lifted and the virus is no longer spreading and threatening people’s safety.
Masks, social distancing, and extra sanitation on the job have become as standard as wearing safety glasses and a hard hat. However, we’ve all seen contractors who don’t provide proper PPE, ignore training, and generally neglect safety. They’re the same ones who just want the work done quickly and as cheaply as possible.
We’ve been hearing that other trades and non-union employers aren’t adhering to health and safety protocols set by Santa Clara County and OSHA. If you are being exposed, call your union representative, so we can help ensure that all of our members are safe on the job.
Nobody is stoked that we are in a global pandemic, nor for all of the inconveniences that go with it, especially on the job. But until everyone is vaccinated, keep yourself, your family, and your fellow workers and their families safe. Our health and our lives depend on the person next to us and the person next to them. And it’s the law.
