Over the last year, there have been many injuries to union members performing construction work at the new World Trade Center site. Most of these union workers were members of Local 3, The Carpenter’s Union and Iron Workers.
Many types of injuries have happened in several different ways. Some union members have fallen from scaffolds while others have fallen from ladders or been struck by falling objects.
Several workers have been injured when they have tripped and fallen on debris left in walkways or passage ways within the construction site. Other union members have been injured in fires and other electrical accidents.
