    Default Local 355 Member Sets Sights on Md. Delegate Race

    Workplace safety is an overlooked issue by many. But not Karen Simpson, a Teamster and candidate for the Maryland House of Delegates. Her family knows all-too-well the cost that comes from unsafe working conditions.

    Back in 1990, Simpson’s brother Paul was working construction on a bridge project on Maryland’s Eastern Shore when he plunged 65 feet to the ground as he tried to jump on a crane-suspended platform from an unguarded concrete pier cap. Despite the site’s unsafe working conditions, he was not provided with fall protection, and died.

    Simpson said that had her brother been represented by a labor union, Paul would be alive today. A union is all about taking care of its members, she noted, and aggressively enforces employer requirements to provide safe conditions for its workers.
