COVID-19 Holyoke DPW

As of April 9, 2020 the city has equipped their employees with the proper personal equipment (P.P.E) that they need to perform their job at Holyoke D.P.W. They assured me they have changed their work schedule and shifts to properly practice social distancing in the work place. Also they have divided their staff into two (2) shifts rotating every other week off with full pay. The city has kept their employees safe through this COVID – 19 pandemic, at this time The Union doesn’t have much leverage to demand The City to pay $2.00 an hour increase.
