National Child Identification Program
 

Members,

The Child ID Kits are in.  Please contact your Local office to reserve kits for your children.  Additionally, we will have kits on-hand at our monthly meetings.

BAC Local/ADC Officers,

To help make sure our families and communities are as safe as possible, BAC is teaming up with the National Child Identification Program to provide the Child ID Kit to all members with children.

Information regarding the Child ID Kit has been published in our latest Journal and on the BAC website. It is your Local/ADC’s responsibility to notify the IU via email and let us know how many kits you estimate will be needed, so each household with children will receive one kit at no cost.  The IU will ship the kits to you to distribute within the next few weeks. Supplies are limited and based on the number of your Local/ADC members. Additional kits can be purchased through the National Child Identification Program directly.

Email your request for Child ID Kits to: rhaut@bacweb.org and if you have any questions, please feel free to contact the IU at 202.383.3934.                

Fraternally,

Gerard Scarano

Democratic Gubernatorial candidate Philip Murphy visits the BACNJ
 

On Wednesday January 11th, Democratic candidate for Governor of New Jersey Phil Murphy paid a visit to BACNJ's Administrative District Council Union Hall and Training Center in Bordentown. 



After spending some time with Officers and Field Staff, Murphy toured the facility and spent some time in the training center interacting with the apprentices. 


After 8 years of a Christie administration, BACNJ looks forward to working with a Governor who supports a department of Labor that is fully staffed and aggresive in their enforcement, supports and promotes the use of Project Labor Agreements, and encourages the benefits of apprenticeship training!

New Silica Ruling
 

New Silica Rule offers a Simple Solution to a Deadly Problem

Statement by International Union of Bricklayers and Allied Craftworkers President James Boland in Support of OSHA’s Final Rule to Protect Workers from Exposure to Respirable Crystalline Silica

April 19, 2016 – The International  Union of Bricklayers and Allied Craftworkers (BAC) applauds OSHA for doing  what’s right for working people; creating healthier workplaces by updating the  silica standard is a simple solution to a deadly problem.

The current standard is  insufficient to protect construction workers. At the current permissible exposure  limit, 100% of construction workers will get sick or die from silica-related  illness over the course of a 40 year career. According to a CDC report issued  under President Bush, “deaths from inhalation of silica-containing dust can  occur after a few months' exposure.” 1 That is a fact that has been well-established, and we have seen the results of exposure  at permissible limits in the untimely illness of far too many bricklayers—union  and non-union alike. Even at the reduced permissible limit under the new rule,  a significant number of workers will become ill over the course of their  working lives, but it will go a long way toward improving the health and safety  of workers in this industry.

The new standard provides a  meaningful and practical way for employers and employees to comply with the  law. This is not complicated. Table one in the rule “matches common  construction tasks with dust control methods, so employers know exactly what  they need to do to limit worker exposures to silica. The dust control measures  listed in the table include methods known to be effective, like using water to  keep dust from getting into the air or using ventilation to capture dust. In  some operations, respirators may also be needed. Employers who follow Table 1  correctly are not required to measure workers’ exposure to silica and are not  subject to the permissible exposure limit.” 2  The remedies offered in the new standard are  simple: water and electricity are available on jobsites already, and most  equipment already comes with standard attachments for water or vacuum removal  methods.

Today’s hearing of the House Education and the  Workforce Committee is nothing more than a thinly veiled attempt to undermine  this much needed regulatory reform. Members of the BAC are committed to do  everything in our power to support the silica standard for the construction  industry and fight any effort to overturn or delay implementation of the rule.

We are very disappointed in today’s  effort by Congressional Republicans trying to undercut safety efforts in favor  of a few powerful interests. For decades, BAC has fought for reduced exposure  limits, and the science is behind us. Working people should not get sick and  die in return for a hard day’s work—especially when reasonable, feasible and  available measures exist to protect them. 

Congress would do well to remember  that the people exposed to this hazardous element expect that their elected  representatives will do what’s good for America, our communities and our  families. It is the right time to move this rule forward, and we expect our elected  leaders to do their jobs and lead.
