The Association of Union Constructors (TAUC) and North America’s Building Trades Unions (NABTU) recently released a joint letter urging construction professionals to follow COVID-19 jobsite safety protocols amid the rise in breakthrough COVID-19 cases and the spread of the Delta variant. The ongoing pandemic -- and an overarching concern for the well-being of the men and women who maintain our country’s critical infrastructure -- prompted both national organizations to take this important and unprecedented step. In the letter, the two groups expressed support for a “layered approach” to addressing the pandemic. “At the jobsite, testing and tracing, adequate ventilation, physical distancing, and masking and respiratory protection will protect members,” the two groups wrote. “To assist with that, we are asking you to consider getting vaccinated if you haven’t already. It’s one of the best ways to protect you and others from COVID-19 and the Delta variant.” You can view the TAUC-NABTU letter here. ECA is chapter of TAUC.
