Mayor Kenney, Protect Essential Workers

Today, Teamsters Local 623 along with over 40 Local unions and allied organizations sent a letter to Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney. We are asking Mayor Kenney to meet five needs for all Essential Workers in the city of Philadelphia:

  1. Expand Testing Eligibility to All Essential Workers
  2. Mandate Anti-Retalition Provisions for All Essential Workers
  3. Authorize the Office of Labor to File Suit On Behalf of Impacted Workers
  4. Enforce Strict Safety and Sanitation Guidelines for Employers
  5. Reopen Hahnemann Hospital for Public Use

Click through to read the letter and see the signatories.


Labor managers are violating 9.5 rules. Some are claiming that 9.5 rules are not in effect due to the coronavirus crisis. This is not true.

If your 9.5 rights are being violated make sure you RECORD, REPORT and FILE A GRIEVANCE.
