Dear Members, Recently high levels of PCB's were found in Lederle (, and there may be other worksites on campus where members may be exposed to other toxic hazards.

If you are concerned about potential hazards in your work environment, including asbestos,PCB's,mold etc.,please consider joining our new multi-union workplace health and safety committee to address issues affecting our health. We want to find out where there may be clusters of unhealthy workplaces or members whose health may have been adversely affected by their workplace and put in place an effective timely protocol to inform people about any workplace hazards.

To volunteer for this committee please email Kathy Rhines: Thanks for passing on your workplace health concerns as well.
