    As a wife and mother to children of a Lockheed Martin employee in Whitesettlement, Texas I want to state my concern for the health of all Lockheed Martin employees.

  We are in the midst of a pandemic that has swept across our nation. Schools, libraries,  businesses etc. have begun to shut down for some time. CDC is recommending not to be in areas with more then 10 people. These facilities hold way over that number. Most of their employees can not work from home due to the nature of their jobs. I would hate to see this get out of control due to the company's negligence.

  There are precautions being implemented throughout the United States. We need to recognize that Lockheed Martin employees have families including children and elderly. We need to give them the same right to protect themselves at this time. It is understandable that their role in the company is one of great importance but so is their health. My children will not be attending school for three weeks or more. What does that matter when their father is going to a high risk area everyday and can potentially bring this virus home. Because of the amount of employees and the proximity in which they are working I am concerned this can cause a great threat to the community.

  Lockheed Martin has stated to the press that they are cleaning the facility. However, all they are cleaning is the bathrooms. Break rooms are not being cleaned by trained cleaning professional, which in return can cause further spread of COVID-19. The manufacturing floor has not been touched. They seemed to have undermined the risk they are putting their greatest assets, their employees under. One of their workers at this moment is actually hospitalized because he picked up the slack of the company. He took it upon himself to clean up some of the common areas and fell ill with COVID-19 causing him to he admitted. Please lets keep him in our hearts at this time. He shared a video with us where he talks for over 11 minutes even though he is having trouble catching his breath. He did it all in the name of bringing awareness. By Lockheed allowing so many people in the facility at the same time this increases chances for exposure to the Corona Virus. 

  I ask that you help me by signing this petition. I want to allow these workers to feel safe and their families to also have peace of mind.  I strongly believe they should have PAID leave for their safety, the safety of their families, and the safety  of our community. We need to think of each other and do the right thing. If you are with me on this please show your concern and support by signing this petition. Thank you!

On April 11, 2020 we had the first Lockheed Martin Fort Worth Facility death caused by COVID-19.  Due to the untimely passing of Mr. Daniel's, I thought it would be a great idea to let his family know we are thinking of them. I took it upon myself to set up a GoFundMe to help his family out in these tough and unfortunate times. Anything you are able to donate would be immensely appreciated! However, it is understandable that not everyone can do that at this moment. In that case a signature of support for this petition would suffice. The link to the GoFundMe is below. Thanks so much to you all in advance!
