After receiving several complaints from workers at the AK Steel plant in Dearborn, US Reps Debbie Dingell D-12th District and Rashida Tlaib D-13th District, State Rep Abdullah Hammoud D-Dearborn, State Sens Stephanie Chang D-Detroit and Sylvia Santana D-Detroit are calling on Cleveland Cliffs, the new owner of the plant, to take all necessary measures to protect the safety and health of the workers immediately. In a joint statement they said “The elected officials are aware of at least one worker at the plant who has tested positive for COVID-19. The officials have received numerous complaints from their residents. Allegations include: lack of adequate cleaning and disinfecting at the plant, ignoring social distancing guidelines by making workers sit near each other on vehicles at the site, informing potentially non-essential workers that they must continue working, and more.”
