All workers are entitled to and should demand safe working conditions. The State of New York and UFCW 1500 can work together to ensure this.
The Union has the right to inspect a unionized worksite at anytime to ensure safe working conditions. If you feel there is an unsafe condition, contact your Steward or your Union Representative to discuss the situation.
Together, we can work with your employer to fix the problem or take appropriate legal action if necessary.
For detailed information about safety and health at work, visit the AFL-CIO's Safety and Health at Work web page.
The Federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has the power to enforce laws which affect safety and health at work.
New York State workers can also use the State Department of Labor and Industries website to find our more about worker rights in state law.
