AFSCME 2910 CHIEF STEWARD TO RECEIVE WORKPLACE SAFETY AWARD:

Wednesday, March 3, 2010

(DC labor)"Every union local has someone who dedicates themselves to the health and safety of their coworkers," says AFSCME Local 2910 President Saul Schniderman. "Nan Thompson Ernst's work exemplifies this." Ernst (l), Local 2910's chief steward, is to be honored today with the "Advocate of Workplace Safety Award" by the Office of Compliance for her commitment to safety at the Library of Congress. The award ceremony is being held in the Senate Auditorium and honors her and other workers throughout the legislative branch who have made an impact on safety in the workplace. Ernst's personal devotion to safety has directly affected the day-to-day lives of her coworkers, through projects like fire safety, asbestos management, lead contamination in the drinking water for staff and visitors, and the creation of an emergency evacuation plan for disabled coworkers. "Too often," Schniderman says, this important work goes unnoticed, so it's special when these activists get recognized with an award." - Paddy Lehane
