COSHes Help Build Healthy Unions
Lessin, Nancy; Richardson, Charley
[Excerpt] Boston's current fiscal crisis has made the refrain "we have no money to fix it" seem like a broken record. Yet, recently, Boston City Hospital workers have won improved ventilation, larger work rooms, air conditioning in certain areas, and the closing of a particularly noxious area with the transfer of workers who had been assigned there. A key to these victories was the establishment of a well-trained three-union hospital-wide health and safety committee that meets regularly to tackle both ongoing problems and crises.
