Tell your Representative to vote YES on H.R. 1195!

Time to put on the pressure! 

At the 2019 Rapid Response Conference, over 650 Steelworkers took to the streets in Washington, D.C. to send a strong message to Congress and the Department of Labor: that we want Safe Jobs Now for our health care and social service workers.

While we rallied in front of the Department of Labor, a group of our impacted health care members met with representatives from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and delivered tens of thousands of postcards from our national action to urge passage of the Workplace Violence Prevention for Health Care and Social Service Workers Act.

Our members also delivered postcards to Senate offices and held conversations with over 200 House offices and made hundreds of calls to drive home our message that safety on the job is a priority for every worker. 

Our message was heard, and the House passed the bill shortly afterUnfortunately, like many of our priorities last session, the bill was stalled out in the Senate. 

Here’s the good news

The House has once again introduced a bill that will get a vote this week.

We need your help to remind them just how important passage of the bill is to our Steelworker siblings and to our family members who work in these sectors. 

Make a quick call and send an email today

It’s quick, easy, and it makes a difference!
