🚨Amazing the New York Heroes Act isn't getting more attn – especially given the ongoing spread of the coronavirus and likelihood that another pandemic
It would require employers to institute workplace protections against "airborne infectious diseases"
We love @NYCOSH and we appreciate our essential workers and the folks who have helped us get through this pandemic. We need to keep them safe too. https://twitter.com/nycosh/status/1384508507395969024
This is what equitable rebuilding looks like in a COVID-reality. 1 year ago it was scary for our worker members. 1 year later, it doesn't have to be.
Big props to the orgs, workers who led this win & esp to @KarinesReyes87 @CarlHeastie. Now we wait for @NYGovCuomo to sign... https://twitter.com/ALIGNny/status/1384273939048787968
So proud of @KarinesReyes87 and very appreciative of our speaker @CarlHeastie for making these protections for workers the law. Grateful. https://twitter.com/nycosh/status/1384508507395969024
The #NYHEROAct passed in the Assembly!
Some facts about this legislation:
🔸Our inaction costs businesses 💲
🔹Businesses already have guidelines in place
🔸We need to control COVID to revitalize the economy📈
We can keep our workers safe and bring back the economy!
Essential workers risked their own health to ensure our safety. As we emerge from the pandemic, we must guarantee workplaces are safe from airborne diseases, like #COVID19.
Proud to vote for @KarinesReyes87’s #NYHero Act, which will protect workers & save lives. #ProtectNYHeroes
Workers' rights & supporting immigrant small businesses do NOT need to be diametrically opposing issues. In AAPI communities, these go hand in hand.
That's why we need the Nail Salon Accountability Act - to protect, benefit all #nailsalon workers, employers & consumers.
HUGE: NYS Assembly passes the #NYHERO Act! TY Assembly bill sponsor @KarinesReyes87 & Speaker
@CarlHeastie for your leadership! Now @NYGovCuomo must sign #NYHERO as soon as it reaches his desk and #ProtectNYHeroes:
- Safety Standards

- Protects small biz
.@CatalinaCruzNY: Listen to workers. If you listen story after story about the lived experience of workers. Many of workers got sick. Many have died. It is not enough to hit pots and pans. We must pass #NYHERO.
“Firefighter Daniel Foley was the second member of his family to be taken from us far too soon, as a result of the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. They have been laid to rest, side-by-side, as brothers by blood and by profession. There is not a more deserving
Covid is still here & new dangerous variants are spreading. New Yorkers need permanent health & safety protections for a safe Covid recovery.
Join us tomorrow to urge the @NYSA_Majority & @NYGovCuomo to pass #NYHERO Act now!
Evelyn Brown tested positive for Covid not once, but twice while working at an assisted living facility in the Bronx.
With the #NYHERO Act passing the Senate, we look to the leadership of @CarlHeastie & @NYSA_Majority to act NOW and #ProtectNYHeroes!
