Public Sector OSHA in PA
Updated On: Oct 09, 2019
ALL workers deserve a SAFE work place! Currently, over half a million workers in Pennsylvania are not protected by OSHA’s health and safety regulations, we need to change that! 28 states have already implemented health and safety protections for public sector workers, and Pennsylvania is long overdue to do the same. With nearly 5,000 public sector union members, Local 1776KS is standing with workers and fighting for House Bill 1082 (Rep. Harkins, D-Erie) and Senate Bill 464 (Sen. Tartaglione, D-Philadelphia), both designed to bring OSHA-style protections to all public-sector workers. You can do the same by urging your legislators to support these bills and bring OSHA-style protections to the public sector. No worker should ever suffer a preventable injury on the job!
