Wellness & Well-being Highlights
Week of March 12, 2023
This week’s edition of our Worker Wellness & Well-being blog consists of topics from how perks in the workplace are about to change to how one religion has incorporated Yoga into their Lenten practices to the March 8th celebration of International Women’s Day. Today, I wish to shed some light on how a rare conviction in a Brooklyn court recently charged a (non-union) contractor with the (homicide) death of an immigrant construction worker. The district attorney made it clear that when contractors cut corners and allow workers to work in unsafe conditions, they will face criminal repercussions! To this end, I have 2 thoughts I want to leave you with: 1) I am thankful for the working relationship our unions and signatory contractors have with OSHA at the national and local levels; and 2) Hopefully, “Carlos’ Law” will reinforce the importance of the professional-level safety training delivered to our future workforce via our jointly-trusted US-DOL Registered Apprenticeship Programs across this great nation.
