When the Occupational Safety and Health Act went into effect on this day in 1971, it left all public sector workers out in the cold. Since then, unions and the labor movement have fought tirelessly to bring much-needed OSHA protections to the public sector.

If 2020 and the ongoing coronavirus pandemic has taught us anything, it’s that every worker deserves to have a safe, healthy working environment no matter what.

In memory of the SEIU Local 668 members we lost in the last year, we will continue to fight for these much-needed protections.

This Workers’ Memorial Day, we continue to call upon every Pennsylvania legislator to support and pass the Jake Schwab Worker’s Protection Bill, which will provide OSHA protections and regulations to public sector workers.

CLEAR Conversations: Beyond COVID-19 - Protecting essential community services and the workers who provide them with SEIU Local 668 President Steve Catanese

CLEAR For PA is holding a Facebook Live Discussion with SEIU Local 668 President Steve Catanese about SEIU 668’s state and federal priorities for the coming year, including worker protections, another federal stimulus package, and the need to preserve essential state services and the jobs associated with them.

“Our Local 668 members are essential workers who are risking their lives every day to keep our Commonwealth running and to keep our communities safe,” says Catanese. “We will never stop fighting for our workers’ safety and financial security. Our members are providing services to Pennsylvanians who, in many cases, are at their most vulnerable, and they deserve a living wage and a safe workplace. They cannot wait any longer.”

SEIU Local 668 is a member-driven labor union representing 19,000 workers across the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

🚨Happening Now🚨

SEIU 668 member and UC worker Shawn Domenico is testifying to the House Labor and Industry Committee on the Unemployment Compensation system during the pandemic.

We know the system is broken—workers aren’t getting the funds they need, while UC employees are overburdened and working in an outdated system.

Hear from a worker's perspective what we can do immediately to help unemployed Pennsylvanians get the support they need.

SEIU Local 668 members are on the frontlines, providing essential services to Pennsylvania communities amidst this ongoing pandemic.

However, we have members in our union still not making $15/hour, including Children & Youth Social Workers, Drug and Alcohol Counselors, Direct-Care Providers, and even Jail Correctional Officers. Essential workers need relief now--we can’t wait a minute longer for hazard pay and a $15 minimum wage.

Join SEIU members and community leaders across the nation as we generate as many calls as possible to the Senate demanding they pass massive federal relief today.

Union members are used to fighting for safe jobs and good contracts. Now as Pennsylvanians, we need to fight again. Our members are essential workers and their votes are essential, too. Not only do their voices matter, the voices of all voters matter as well, and they deserve to have every single vote counted here in the Commonwealth!

We’ll continue to call for every valid ballot to be counted here in PA because every voter has a right to use their voice.

Yesterday, essential workers of all races, who don’t always vote in elections, turned out in record numbers!

Today, we’re standing up to politicians who want to pick and choose how votes will be counted. By inciting chaos and stoking fear, anti-worker politicians hope they can bully and cheat their way through this election.

But we will keep fighting until every single vote is counted. We won’t let anyone steal our votes and our voice—in our democracy, every vote counts!

Polls are officially CLOSED here in Pennsylvania--if you’re still in line to vote, you’ll be allowed to wait and cast your ballot, so be sure you stay in line.

Don’t forget--PA still has hundreds of thousands of mail-in ballots to count, so we won’t know final election results for several days! We’ll keep you posted on how pro-worker candidates are doing throughout the week, so be sure to check back for updates.

We know this election season, just like the year as a whole, has been super strange--we won’t even have final election results here in PA for several days.

But every vote brings us one step closer to having pro-worker candidates working for us in Washington DC and Harrisburg: https://bit.ly/SEIUPAEndorsed
