SEIU Reps Accompany OSHA For Safety Inspections Of Non Union Workplaces


The Obama administration continues to do whatever they can to help their friends in labor unions. They are now allowing SEIU representatives to accompany OSHA inspectors on safety inspections of non-union workplaces. Usually these occur after the unions’ friends report safety violations in an effort to cause problems for the non-union businesses.

The Daily Caller has a few recent examples.

SEIU agents recently accompanied an inspector from the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), a division of the Department of Labor, on three visits to nonunion work sites under contract with the Houston-based janitorial company Professional Janitorial Services (PJS).

The SEIU representatives gained entry alongside an OSHA inspector to a private office building cleaned by PJS in West Houston on October 29, 2013.

SEIU representatives also accompanied an OSHA inspector on visits to office buildings cleaned by PJS in Houston on October 29, 2013, and in Southwest Houston on November 7, 2013, but the union agents were denied access by the building owners each time.

The visits were made to investigate OSHA complaints by SEIU-friendly employees alleging that the nonunion janitorial company did not provide workers safety goggles and gloves in some instances. Though each of the inspections found proper goggles and gloves, OSHA fined PJS for other alleged infractions related to not keeping certain safety data sheets or providing proper training information on use of cleaning chemicals.

The SEIU also sent along a representative for an inspection at the Philadelphia Airport, and who knows how many others. Do you think these SEIU goons are fair and impartial when helping OSHA with these inspections? If so I have a bridge to sell you.
