Hello Members and all concerned,

As we know, due to the COVID-19 crisis many have been affected
and are out of work;
The need for food donations is greater than ever. The Gemma E. Moran/United Way Labor
Food Bank is experiencing a huge loss of food donations because of many factors, including
much lower donations from food collections and benefactors such as supermarkets,
who generously donate great quantities of food each week
and are restricted by fears of spreading the virus.

The Food Bank now has to purchase food directly from sources and could use our help!
Our members and EB employees in general have shown their generosity throughout
the years; if you would like to donate to the Food Center, there is a link below which will
take you directly to a green "Donate" button. Thanks for all you do!

With the Senate back in session this week, negotiations are underway on a new stimulus package to help get America through the pandemic and the economic crisis. For months, the labor movement has been demanding passage of the HEROES Act that includes the vast majority of America’s Five Economic Essentials. Today, the AFL-CIO is having a day of action encouraging union members to call their senators and urge them to pass the HEROES Act now.

Take Action

Take five minutes to make a difference today - email your US Senator today and ask them to support the HEROES Act (Health and Economic Recovery Omnibus Emergency Solutions)!

The HEROES Act would retain critical provisions, such as:
  • Creating a strong, enforceable temporary OSHA standard to working people in all sectors of our economy. The Senate must ensure that workers feel safe at work; it will slow the spread of the virus, and support a sustained, safe re-start of the economy.
