#ProtectAllWorkers – Coronavirus petition

Make the County safer during the COVID-19 pandemic
In the interests of promoting public health and safety, preventing the spread of COVID-19 in workplaces, minimizing financial hardships on employees, and ensuring the sustainability of critical public services, employees represented by SEIU Local 221 hereby call on the County of San Diego to immediately negotiate with our union to achieve the following goals:

  • Implement workplace health and safety measures, including hand sanitizer, disposable gloves, and other Personal Protective Equipment, as well as sanitization of workspaces, information and training, and other support for employees.
  • Institute accessible and equitable telecommuting policies allowing employees whose work can be partially or entirely performed outside of a County facility to work remotely with the support necessary to be successful.
  • Provide fully paid leave to employees who are unable to work due to the closure of their workplace, their personal health, and the health and welfare of children and other family members, without use of accrued time or being docked pay.
