We won’t back down from the fight to make employers #ProtectAllWorkers. No matter where you work or what your profession is, you have a right to be safe on the job. At the County of San Diego, that means speaking out for Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), Hazard Pay, and other safety standards.
At our recent “speak out” event, a diverse group of County employees gave testimony about the dangerous realities of working without adequate PPE.
Unfortunately, County Executives have dismissed comprehensive health and safety proposals, telling the public that your needs as employees are not “reasonable.”
We didn’t want to have to make this fight public, but the public has a right to know that the County is failing to adequately invest in the COVID-19 response.
Be a part of keeping this momentum going. Now is the time to join fellow County employees by posting your picture holding a sign to social media.

Share this recently released report about the lack of adequate PPE for front-line County staff with your coworkers: “On the Front Lines without Armor.”
The failure of County executives to protect employees is unacceptable. As our union President David Garcias recently told the media, “We will not stop advocating until every single front-line worker has the resources and support they need.”
