NYC construction accidents deaths and injuries need to be classified by union or non union

Recent studies have found that fatal construction accidents in New york City have been occurring mostly on construction sites where non union workers were hired. According to  The New York Committee for Occupational Safety and Health (NYCOSH) an average of 80% of the workers dying in fatal falls on a New York construction site are non union workers (see previous blog). Today in an article in the NY Daily News, politicians and labor groups are asking the city to classify all recorded construction accidents by union or non union.
