Sign the petition to support public workers in Missouri during COVID-19!

Many of our members continue to work and are essential workers during COVID-19. Our CWA brothers and sisters who work for the state are part of this group of essential workers.

Unlike our private employers, who we have been working with to negotiate protections for our members, public workers in Missouri are under the governor's jurisdiction. And MO Governor Parson is not doing enough to protect our members.

Sign the petition to support public workers in Missouri during COVID-19!

State workers continue to serve vulnerable citizens during this global crisis with little protection. We need your help to urge the governor to:

1. Develop a uniform statewide policy on telework.

2. Grant 80 hours paid sick leave, COVID-19 Pandemic Special Category, to workers who have been exposed to a person requiring quarantine due to a positive COVID-19 test.

3. Grant 25% hazard pay for any essential worker not eligible for telework and/or who performs job duties out in the field such as home or facility visits.

4. Honor the existing collective bargaining agreement with state employees that includes the Health & Safety articles.

Please join us in urging Gov. Parson to protect state workers during COVID-19!
