House Passes Resolution to Repeal OSHA Worker Safety Rule

Last week, the U.S. House of Representatives passed H. J. Res 83, which seeks to repeal an Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) rule that clarifies an employer’s responsibility to maintain accurate records of serious work-related injuries and illnesses. This resolution will make it impossible for OSHA to ensure that injury and illness records are complete and accurate and undermine workplace health and safety.

The New Jersey State AFL-CIO is opposed to the passage of this anti-worker resolution.  It passed by a vote of 231-191.  Here is how New Jersey Congressional Delegation voted. RIGHT indicates this member of Congress supported labor’s position and voted against the resolution.  WRONG indicates the Member of Congress voted against working people and in favor of the resolution.
