CWA essential workers demand hazard pay

Ocean County Board of Social Services (OCBSS) staff from CWA Local 1088 attended the Ocean County Commissioner’s meeting to request hazard pay under the American Relief Program (APRA). Over the past few months, workers have been mobilizing by wearing CWA red, rallying outside the workplace, sharing their stories, and more. These workers have been working entirely in person since June 2020, and many have contracted the virus or have had to use personal or unpaid time to quarantine. They have been providing basic services to Ocean County’s most vulnerable residents, including housing, food and health insurance. They are exactly the kind of frontline workers APRA aims to support.
