Many wireless workers at T-Mobile Premium Retailers and contractors do not have the same emergency benefits for COVID-19 as workers at corporate locations, and are being forced to make excruciating decisions every day.
We have received dozens of reports of wireless workers taking action to protect themselves at work. Workers have demanded gloves and won. Workers have insisted that a sick manager leave the store, and won. Workers have demanded bargaining with their employer over health and safety concerns.
As this pandemic escalates across America, Wireless workers are sending in reports from every corner of the country of store and call center closures, call centers with workers who have developed COVID19, and issues around paid leave during this crisis.
