EPA employees have committed our careers to protecting human health and the environment. Our fight for a fair workplace is a fight to continue our mission to protect all Americans and preserve the soul of the EPA. The health and future of our country and planet depend on it.
Protecting the health of our country and our planet depends on a fully functioning EPA, where all employees – from climate scientists to pollution analysts, lawyers, and enforcement personnel – are free from political interference to do their jobs. With the election of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, EPA employees are eager to roll up our sleeves and get to work on protecting the environment and tackling climate change. Read our full statement on their election here.
The Workers' Bill of Rights
In our fight for a fair contract, we created the EPA Workers’ Bill of Rights -- a bold new vision for workers demanding the resources and respect we need to protect human health and the environment.
