Workers in health care and social service industries are a big step closer to having safer workplaces.

On Friday, the House of Representatives passed the Workplace Violence Prevention for Health Care and Social Service Workers Act (H.R.1195) by a bipartisan vote of 254 to 166. The bill requires the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to issue a standard to prevent workplace violence in health care and social service assistance settings.

On this National Library Workers Day, AFSCME library workers deserve to be recognized for the value they bring to our diverse communities and the vital services they provide anyone who asks for help.

Thank you Rodney Fowler Sr. for your 32 years of service to the City of San Diego! And thank you for being a Union leader!

We appreciate all that you have done for AFSCME Local 127 and for AFSCME District Council 36.

Mayor Todd Gloria announced that Today, April 6, 2021 will be known as Rodney Fowler Sr. Day!
