Health & Safety and Organizing (continued)

My friend Rory (of Hazards fame) from across the water reminds me of a 2001 poll conducted by Peter D. Hart Research Group for the AFL-CIO showing that one of the leading reasons that people have a positive attitude toward unions is and safety issues.

And he nicely provides a list of examples of well-known union campaigning victories - both media and organizing - and the role that health and safety played.

Much more to be said on this subject -- by me, Rory and YOU -- but there's a day job to attend. More later.
