Organized Workers for Labor Solidarity

OWLS is an open-multiracial, multicultural group of rank-and-file labor activists, committed to education and action with the aim of building solidarity and fighting spirit in the labor movement.  Help put a public spotlight on the union-busting Freedom Foundation.  The billionaire-backed Foundation is trying to bankrupt the labor movement, slash pension, roll back minimum wage gains, cut public services, attack immigrant rights and much more!

Visit the OWLS website at http://www.organizedworkers.org for more details on meetings and important events.

Occupational Exposure to Asbestos

Carpenters are at risk of developing mesothelioma, a rare cancer caused from asbestos exposure that can take 20-50 years to develop. Asbestos was used in all types of construction before 1980, so residential and commercial carpenters were commonly exposed then. However, some carpenters are still at risk today when they are remodeling older structures.
