Nurses Urge Congress, White House, to Urgently Pass Covid-19 Stimulus Package and Worker Protections; Oppose Inclusion of Liability Waivers

National Nurses United is calling on the United States Congress to urgently pass a Covid-19 relief bill and President Trump to sign that bill into law. The union urges elected officials to ensure that this Covid relief bill contains much needed economic stimulus for the American people, appropriate financial support for public health programs and state and local governments, and the critical policies needed to ensure that workers are protected during the pandemic. The union cautions that any stimulus package that includes liability waivers for employers, businesses, and other institutions, would be counterproductive to pandemic control measures and would undermine efforts to reduce the spread of the virus.
