The U.S. Senate is voting today on S.J. Res. 27, which will reverse 45 years of worker protections and compromise worker safety and health in many of the most dangerous industries.
Call the Capitol now at 202-224-3121 and tell your Senators to vote NO on S.J. Res. 27, a ill-intentioned attack on American workers’ safety.
Then, send an email message telling your Senators to say no to gutting the rules requiring employers to make and maintain records of work-related injuries.
Existing Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requirements have saved thousands of lives on the job. Right now, companies have to keep track of workers’ injuries on the job or face penalties. But Congress could make it almost impossible for the government to enforce that requirement.
If Congress repeals this regulation, it will be impossible for OSHA to effectively enforce recordkeeping requirements.
Now is the time to take action. We cannot allow the safety and health of IAM members and all workers to be compromised.
Contact your Senators and tell them to vote NO on this dangerous law.
