Protect Workers from Deadly Heat!
Send a message to Congress Now
2,000 workers die each year from dangerous heat exposure on the job.
Exposure to excessive heat is one of the most dangerous problems facing workers today. Congress has the power to protect workers now by passing the AsunciÃ³n Valdivia Heat Illness and Fatality Prevention Act.
National COSH and Public Citizen invite you to join us and raise your voice for Heat Stress Action Week. Fill out the form below to tell your representatives you want action to protect workers from heat illness on the job.
PAST FEATURED CAMPAIGNS
Manager Andrew “Hunter” Kirkpatrick dumped their lunches, threatened to call the police regarding their immigration status and much more. The workers are asking you to flood their IG asking Hunter to resign.
Since they are restricting comments on their posts, send them a direct message to their Instagram page OR call them OR email them.
Let’s show these workers some solidarity!
DIRTY DOZEN: KINGSPAN
While Kingspan may describe itself as â€œplanet passionateâ€, their employees will tell you otherwise. At their Santa Ana, California plant, Kingspan subjects employees to indoor air pollution. Employees were so concerned for their safety that they conducted their own independent, indoor air monitoring test and found unhealthy levels of air pollution. For these reasons and more, we urge you to help us tell the green building community that Kingspan is not the sustainable partner it presents itself to be.
DIRTY DOZEN: HILTON HOTELS
Rooms are much dirtier when they go days without cleaning, but Hilton recently announced plans to end the standard of automatic daily housekeeping. Hilton said its goal is to â€œretrain customersâ€ to expect reduced housekeeping services. But Hilton has ALSO said that customers can opt for daily housekeeping at no extra charge- just call the front desk and ask for your room to be cleaned every day. Join housekeepers’ fight for safe workloads by signing their petition and opting in to daily housekeeping whenever you stay at a hotel.

Strippers are service workers who deserve safe working conditions, free of harassment like every other worker. The dancers at Star Garden shared their stories of being harassed, physically assaulted, and intimidated. Despite bringing their concerns to the club’s management, not much was done and some dancers were even fired for speaking up. Join us in calling for their right to a workspace free of retaliation, physical assault, and fear.
LISTEN TO THEIR STORIES!
