DC workers will be watching closely tomorrow as the DC City Council marks up legislation giving workers in the hardest hit industries a right to return to work post-COVID. “Hotels, restaurants, entertainment venues got $100 million from the DC government,” said UNITE HERE Local 25 Executive Secretary-Treasurer John Boardman. “The Council must act to protect workers by passing the Right to Return to Work.” Added Metro Washington Council president Dyana Forester, “We can’t have a just recovery if DC leaves workers behind. The DC City Council must pass a Right to Return to Work for workers in the hardest hit industries.”

As the global labor community mobilizes during 16 Days of Action Against Gender-Based Violence (Nov. 25-Dec 10), the Solidarity Center released a new tool for the campaign to end gender-based violence and harassment (GBVH) at work. The educational video (below) explains GBVH at work, describes how the new International Labor Organization Convention 190 can address it and how union activists can take the next steps to ensure it is ratified by countries around the world. It highlights how C190 is effective only if governments formally endorse it and pass laws implementing it. Find out more at the Solidarity Center.
