General Presidential Election

November 3, 2020

PLAY IT SAFE! Drop off your absentee ballot or early vote. Absentee ballots need to be dropped off 8 pm, on Election Day, NOVEMBER 3.

Demand Workers Be Provided with PPE

The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed a number of areas in which our nation was simply not prepared.

Personal Protective Equipment is every worker’s right.

 

Visit unionmaskbrigade.org to download our safety decree demanding that appropriate personal protective equipment be provided to everyone whose work requires it. Print and display in your workplace.
