NGA Advocates for Cross-Boarder Travel of Glass Industry Technicians

NGA understands urgent times require urgent action, and NGA members across the glass and glazing supply chain are doing everything they can to safeguard their workforce, customers, and their businesses in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Cross-border travel restrictions instituted due to the pandemic have disrupted essential operations of glass manufacturers and fabricators. In an open letter, NGA president and CEO Nicole Harris urges governments to continue to recognize the essential nature of glass and glazing, and to also recognize the cross-border travel of glass industry service technicians as essential.
