Meatpacking Workers Sue OSHA Over COVID-19 Safety

Meatpacking Workers Sue OSHA Over COVID-19 Safety
“The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is failing to do its job properly, according to a lawsuit filed Thursday by three meatpacking workers, who say the agency’s inaction has left them in danger.

The lawsuit accuses OSHA of leaving the workers in imminent danger due to what they say are hazardous working conditions at the factory where they work, run by Maid-Rite Specialty Foods in Pennsylvania, in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.”

— “Meatpacking workers file lawsuit against OSHA, accusing agency of failing to keep them safe,” Eli Rosenberg, Washington Post


“They Warned OSHA They Were in “Imminent Danger” at the Meat Plant. Now They’re Suing the Agency.” Bernice Yeung and Michael Grabell, ProPublica
