Take Action

We demand that the UW Main Campus, UW Medical Center and Harborview Medical Center immediately take additional steps to ensure workers are protected.

These brave folks are showing up every day to keep the UW functioning, and they need plexiglass barriers, proper PPE for ALL front-line workers, and prompt, honest disclosure when they've been exposed to COVID-19.

We must all do our part to flatten the curve. Tell UW leadership and public officials to do their part to protect workers, patients and the public.

The coronavirus outbreak is already causing huge economic disruption and is a grave threat to the stability of state and local government finances.

Funding for public services has taken a huge hit in recent years. Staffing in public health and other agencies never rebounded after the Great Recession.

Now, our health care workers, corrections officers, school employees and others are dealing with overwhelming demand as they try to protect their neighbors.

It’s time for our elected leaders to come through – to make sure we have the supplies, equipment and testing needed on the ground immediately.

Congress is working on a stimulus bill right now. We have to make our voices heard, or it will end up as a bailout for businesses instead of a lifeline for working people.

Tell Congress: Fund the Front Lines!

Front-line workers should be recognized and compensated for their courage.

Join us in asking Governor Inslee, the King County Council, and UW leadership for additional compensation for public-facing workers who are responding to this global pandemic. They are placing their own safety and health on the line in order to protect the public.

We must recognize the proactive measures Governor Inslee has implemented as a result of our advocacy, and call for the bold action that is still needed. Let's ask the leaders in our state to recognize front-line workers with #CourageousDutyPay.
