As we are in the era of the Coronavirus Pandemic our Black Workers are the ones most likely to be on the front lines. Black workers are in various positions such as transit, healthcare, administrative, custodian, sanitary, construction, enforcement, culinary, delivery, postal, security, food services, social services and etc. Black Workers are being subjected to new disparities that jeopardize their own personal safety. BWU wants to ensure Black Workers are protected and have all the necessary tools available to do their jobs safely. We need to ensure that we are all prepared with the proper PPE. In the light of the pandemic we are dealing with former disparities and new ones of being the primary focus of COVID 19. We are dying more than 3 times any other ethnicity. We must raise our voices in solidarity! We have to take a stand for ourselves as no one will speak out for us if we do not. We are in a fight that is JUST-US! We are ultimately on an island all alone, so we Unite!
