野火烟雾

被解雇了! 工人们敦促标准委员会对野火烟雾采取行动

3月21日, 天工人, 农场工人, and others packed a Cal/OSHA Standards Board meeting in Pasadena to urge action on emergency rulemaking to protect outdoor workers from wildfire smoke.

The workers’ message was heard; the Board voted unanimously in favor of developing an emergency standard.

十大赌网app下载, 以及加州劳工联合会和加州农村法律援助基金会, 提交了一份 请愿书 to the Standards Board last December which called for developing an emergency standard on wildfire smoke exposure before the next fire season arrived.

在21日的会议之前,请愿书的命运还不确定. 该司建议全面采用, but Board staff proposed instead to convene an advisory committee to determine whether emergency rulemaking should be initiated, 这个过程可能会让行动推迟几个月,甚至完全阻碍行动.

在听证会上,工人和维权人士强烈要求采取更紧急的行动. 许多人讲述了悲惨的故事 烟条件 以及去年托马斯和伍尔西火灾期间的安全应对不力. 在整个听证会上,一群工人举着牌子,高喊“拯救我们的生命”.

我们的许多盟友通过组织和见证帮助我们赢得了这场胜利, 包括加州劳工联合会, CRLA, CRLAF, 导致, IDEPSCA, MICOP, NDLON, 南加州COSH, 和UCLA-LOSH. 

The Board’s decision directs the Division to draft an emergency rulemaking proposal for consideration and adoption no later than the July Board meeting. It also directs the Division to convene an advisory committee process to develop a permanent wildfire smoke regulation.

十大赌网app下载和我们的合作伙伴也支持现行的立法, AB 1124要求董事会在2019年6月13日前通过一项永久性野火烟雾法规.
