To All Building Trades Affiliates,
The State of Washington has been taking many actions to address the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic.
Many of these actions are with the intention to provide temporary relief for affected workers, including those under isolation or quarantine, and those who cannot work due to their employers reducing hours or closing.
Please find the attached chart indicating the possible relief available to workers should they be negatively affected by COVID-19, even if not ill themselves.
While the chart is not all-inclusive and cannot anticipate or answer every question, it gives some information for all of our members should they need to consider relief options.
We will continue to evaluate and distribute information as it becomes available. Sincerely,
Mark L. Riker, Executive Secretary
Washington State Building & Construction Trades Council
