Warehouse Workers for Justice continues its Workers’ Rights Miniseries in July for Spanish-speaking workers, including sessions on COVID-19 workplace conditions.
The last workshop in the June miniseries will be at 11 a.m. Tuesday on the topic “Fighting Discrimination in the Workplace.”
The workshops conducted with Raise the Floor Alliance legal clinic can be viewed on Facebook Live at the Warehouse Workers for Justice Facebook page.
Both the June and July miniseries include workshops on rights during the COVID-19 pandemic. The June workshop on “Workers’ Rights During COVID-19” was held last week and can still be viewed.
Many workers have questions about essential workers’ pay and the loss of as much as two weeks time due to COVID-19 quarantines, said Sandy Moreno, a lead organizer with Warehouse Workers for Justice.
“In some cases they didn’t get paid for that time,” Moreno said. “In some cases, they had to use their two weeks vacation for that.”
Workers seeking advice or legal assistance can contact Moreno at email@example.com.
July workshops and topics include: workers compensation at 11 a.m. on July 9; immigration and workers’ rights at 11 a.m. on July 16; and workplace rights during COVID-19 at 11 a.m. on July 23.
