Rogge Dunn was recently interviewed during a Kera News story regarding the concerns over janitor safety during COVID-19. Because janitors and cleaners are on the frontlines of the COVID-19 outbreak, advocates say their jobs are becoming increasingly dangerous. Risks include a lack of protective gear and little to no information about the situation.
Many employees are gearing up to address safety concerns to their employers. In addition, unions, employment attorneys, and business owners are speaking up about the risks janitors face every day at work.
During the interview, Dunn shared his insight on how employees should go about addressing concerns to their employers.
Dunn said employees should express their concerns as a group because “there’s safety in numbers.”
This reduces the risk of employers singling out an employee. “It’s easy to fire or retaliate against one employee and make an example of them to send a shockwave message through the ranks,” Dunn said. “But if 10 or 20 employees come forward with legitimate concerns over safety, quite literally the employer probably can’t fire them all.”
