    Federal Worker Safety Bill Reintroduced in Senate

    As concerns grow over the COVID-19 Delta variant, a group of senators reintroduced The Chai Suthammanont Remembrance Act requiring federal agencies to establish COVID-19 safety plans to protect federal employees returning to the office.

    The NTEU-endorsed legislation would require federal agencies to publicly post a plan for recalling employees to the office 30 days before they do so. Among other things, the safety plan must include procedures for testing and contact-tracing, efforts to protect employees who travel, safety requirements for visitors to federal facilities, flexible options for high-risk employees and contingency plans if there is a surge in cases.

    The new version of the bill mandates that agency plans include descriptions of "any rule or protocol regarding whether employees of the agency required to be physically present at covered worksites are required to be fully vaccinated before being present at covered worksites.”

    The House Oversight and Reform Committee approved the updated bill in May.
