Statement of UAW President Rory L. Gamble on Implementation of the Nonpartisan Science-Based Approach of the Biden Plan to Reopen the Economy

“I have said for some time that the only litmus test in reopening the economy is whether you would send your son or daughter into the workplace. To do that requires a science-based nonpartisan approach to worker safety.

Former Vice President Biden’s plan relies on experts and science-based factors, acknowledges the need for adequate testing and oversight of safety in reopening workplaces, and is devoid of partisan acrimony. Joe Biden knows that the safety of workers can’t be a partisan issue.

UAW members are more than happy to return to the workplace under safe, monitored and healthy working conditions. Testing, CDC guidelines and flattening the pandemic curve saves lives.”
