U.S. Secretary of Labor Marty Walsh appointed 15 individuals to serve on the Advisory Committee on Construction Safety And Health

WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Secretary of Labor Marty Walsh appointed 15 individuals to serve on the Advisory Committee on Construction Safety And Health. The ACCSH, for short, is a continuous body by statue that provides advice and assistance via construction standards and policy directly to the Assistant Secretary. Its members are to represent interests of the public, employees, and state and federal government.

The members appointed are as follows:

Five employee representatives:

Cheryl M. Ambrose, United Association of Journeymen and Apprentices of the Plumbing and Pipe Fitting Industry of the U.S. and Canada.

Christina Trahan Cain, North America’s Building Trades Unions.

Wayne J. Creasap II, International Association of Bridge, Structural, Ornamental and Reinforcing Iron Workers.

Ryan Papariello, Laborers Health and Safety Fund of North America

David Wysocki, International Masonry Training and Education Foundation.

Five employer representatives:

Kevin Cannon, Associated General Contractors of America.

Julie Carter, Roy Anderson Corp.

Fravel E. Combs, M.A. Mortenson Company.

Greg Sizemore, Associated Builders and Contractors.

Wesley L. Wheeler, National Electrical Contractors Association.

Two public representatives:

Christopher Fought, Merck.

Ronald Sokol, Safety Council of Texas City.

Two state government representatives:

Christopher Scott Mabry, North Carolina Department of Labor Occupational Safety and Health Division.

Charles Stribling, Kentucky Labor Cabinet Department of Workplace Standards.

One federal government representative designated by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services secretary:

G. Scott Earnest, National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health.

Christina Trahan Cain will serve as the ACCSH chair.

The members stand continued truth to President Biden’s campaign promises to strengthen Unions through out America. Unions have struggled in recent years along with failed bouts with players such as Amazon in recent months where workers voted against unionization.

Secretary Walsh himself a labor leader following his father into Laborers Local 223 in Boston. Secretary Walsh head the Building and Construction Trades Council from 2011 to 2013.

Walsh has been in the news this week over pressures to resign from Seth Moulton (D-Mass). Moulton has stated that Secretary Walsh should resign if he was aware of past domestic violence allegations facing the Boston police commissioner Walsh nominated.

The commissioner, Dennis White, has since been embattled in litigation with the City of Boston. The saga continues as a court filing this month states the former commissioner to White and his old boss William Gross swore under oath that Walsh did know of the past allegations.
