Coronavirus Resources and Updates for UWUA Members

Millions of people rely on the essential services UWUA members deliver including reliable electricity and natural gas, wastewater services and clean drinking water. While some individuals have the option to work remotely, many of the services our members deliver require us to be out in the community and on-site at a facility. As this pandemic evolves, we urge our members to remain vigilant and stay safe during the COVID-19 outbreak.

We strongly urge our employers to implement measures that protect our members while they are on the job. Employers must examine sick leave and remote work policies at this time as well as safety procedures and essential staffing plans.

In support of these efforts, UWUA released the following guidance to reinforce existing Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standards and to track visitor access to employer facilities.

We will continue to provide updates on this situation. Please check back at and follow us on Facebook and Twitter for updates and information.
