A recent OSHA interpretation letter clarified that nonunion employees can select anyone, including nonemployee union representatives, to accompany OSHA officials during an employer worksite inspection. The nonemployee union representatives can file complaints on behalf of a nonunion employee, request an OSHA inspection, and participate in informal conferences or other proceedings. While some fear that this interpretation may encourage unions to use OSHA complaints and inspections as an organizing tool and to gain access and exposure to a nonunionized workforce, no one truly knows the effect of OSHA’s new stance. One thing is certain. It’s always wise to watch out for a wolf in sheep’s clothing.
