State employees union asks Ricketts to send more home to work [View all]

The state employees labor union is asking Gov. Pete Ricketts to allow more people to work at home and to give hazard pay to those who can't.

"We believe any employee who needs to report in person to work should receive an immediate $2/hour shift differential as hazard pay until this emergency passes," union executive director Justin Hubly said in a letter to Ricketts.

Nebraska Association of Public Employees, which represents more than 8,000 workers, sent a letter to Ricketts on Thursday saying that while its members were proud to ensure Nebraskans have essential services during the coronavirus pandemic, they must be protected to continue those services.

Hubly said all state employees who can should be sent home to work immediately. And all local offices should be closed for face-to-face interaction with the public.
