Protecting Corrections Officers and Frontline Staff During the Pandemic
From the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic, correctional officers and their unions have demanded that governors across the country act immediately to limit the spread of COVID-19 and protect those living and working inside jails, prisons and detention facilities and invest in the dedicated staff who are still going to work every day.
One Voice United drafted policy recommendations sent to the National Governors Association with the support of national labor leaders and presidents of 16 state unions across the country.
Since then, One Voice United has continued to demand protections, communicating with the Centers for Disease Control and Protection as well as attorneys general across the country.
