AFL-CIO Sues OSHA for Emergency Temporary Standard to Protect Workers

AFL-CIO Sues OSHA for Emergency Temporary Standard to Protect Workers

(Washington, D.C., May 18, 2020)—This morning, the AFL-CIO filed a petition for a writ of mandamus in the U.S. Court of Appeals to compel the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to issue an emergency temporary standard (ETS) protecting U.S. workers against the coronavirus.

 

The petition demonstrates that thousands of workers have been infected on the job through exposure to infected patients, co-workers and unscreened members of the public.
