Delay of Silica Standard Has Deadly Consequences for Workers Including BAC Members

Statement by International Union of Bricklayers and Allied Craftworkers President James Boland on the 90-Day Delay of OSHA’s Silica Standard

Starting June 23, American workers will have the right to a workplace where they don’t have to breathe tiny particles of glass that cut their lungs.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has issued a final ruling to curb lung cancer, silicosis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and kidney disease in America's workers by limiting their exposure to respirable crystalline silica. The rule is comprised of two standards, one for Construction and one for General Industry and Maritime.

Information shared via Missouri AFL-CIO, and will be updated as new sessions are added

Brothers & Sisters:

As we found out through our pilot program on Election Day April 4, trainings are an intricate part of making our efforts a successful piece of the puzzle to beating back right to work in Missouri. So many situations in the field were handled expertly by our volunteers because of the training program that could have otherwise gone awry.

Ask Your State Senator to Oppose SB20!

Repealing or weakening Prevailing Wage laws in Missouri means that you work just as hard as you do now for minimum wage, and not the wage you collectively bargained for. Missouri HB104 sailed through the Missouri House, with the Speaker not even acknowledging any input or dissent from a single Representative.  Now, it moves on to the Senate, which has it's own version, SB 20.
