OSHA ACTION ON NORTH CAROLINA LAUDED

 OSHA ACTION ON NORTH CAROLINA LAUDED
 WASHINGTON, April 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Peg Seminario, director of


the AFL-CIO Department of Occupational Safety and Health, issued the following statement regarding the Department of Labor's announcement on North Carolina:
 The AFL-CIO welcomes the announcement by the Department of Labor initiating formal proceedings to withdraw the North Carolina state OSHA plan. This action in response to the September 1991 AFL-CIO petition to withdraw the plan confirms that North Carolina is failing to protect the safety and health of its workers, and that the state plan should no longer be allowed to operate.
 We call upon OSHA to provide a substantial number of federal compliance officers in North Carolina to ensure that vigorous enforcement activity takes place while the withdrawal proceedings go forward. OSHA also should seek additional funding from the Congress to cover the additional expense of its concurrent jurisdiction in North Carolina.
