This comes after it was revealed that a member of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives tested positive for COVID-19, and the partisan leadership of the House failed to notify, in a timely fashion, the member’s colleagues from opposing parties, his counterparts in the Senate, or the state employees whose jobs require them to be in the halls and offices of the Capitol during a pandemic.

AFSCME Council 13 continues the fight for public sector OSHA and the passage of Senator Tartaglione’s Senate Bill 464. We thank the Senator for her support on this issue.
