For working families here in Alameda County, the crisis is amplifying the protections we have all been fighting for: strong protections for workers including paid sick time and quality healthcare, collective bargaining agreements, and social safety nets.
ALC will continue to work with our affiliates, community partners, and elected officials to make sure working families are protected during this time. In particular, for the frontline workers who currently do not have proper safety equipment, appropriate training, paid sick leave, or wage replacement if they are ordered to be at home.
Now is the time to stand together and take action! Call on our County Board of Supervisors to immediately enact strong paid sick leave ordinances. Paid sick leave is necessary for working families to get through our current crisis.
