Unions To Accompany OSHA Inspectors On Non Union Job Sites

IEC Strongly Opposes Rule Sanctioning Union Participation on OSHA Inspections

On February 21, 2013, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) issued a letter of interpretation addressed to Mr. Steve Sallman of the United Steel, Paper and Forestry, Rubber, Manufacturing, Energy, Allied Industrial and Service Workers International Union (USW) explicitly endorsing union representatives and other non-employee third parties to accompany OSHA inspectors on walk-around inspections at non-union workplaces. 
The Coalition for Workplace Safety believes the interpretation is inconsistent with the statute and regulations. This letter of interpretation is bad policy implemented through a non-transparent closed process. IEC joined 56 organizations to send a letter to OSHA communicating our displeasure that such a policy did not go through the normal rule-making process and was issued as a letter of interpretation. IEC will continue to monitor this situation closely.
