As We Move into the Third Year of the Covid Virus, Here's Where Things Stand Now
Updated On: Apr 15, 2022

April 14, 2022 | Countless frontline and essential workers, including hundreds of thousands of Teamster members, have become infected, ill, or have died from exposure to COVID-19 at work. These workers have frequently faced life-threatening hazards while providing medical care, food, shelter and transportation, and other essential services we all need. So far in the United States, close to 1 million have died, and 140 million have been infected with COVID-19. Throughout the past two years, the IBT Safety and Health Department have dedicated itself to providing the best information possible to Teamster members and local unions, lending support to bargaining between local unions with employers, and participating in the regulatory and legislative process to help protect our members and communities from infection and spread of COVID-19. A variety of information on COVID-19 is available on www.teamstersafety.org, including updated safety and health facts, the rights of workers and unions and responsibilities of employers, and model contract language.
