    Default Rollex Ordered to Make Changes for Member Safety

    The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has ordered Rollex Corporation to fix 31 machines by July 31 after Teamsters Local 727 representatives insisted the changes be made immediately.

    Local 727 represents about 100 workers at the aluminum soffit and steel siding manufacturer located in Elk Grove Village, Ill.

    “Our members’ safety is the union’s No. 1 priority,” said John Coli Jr., President of Local 727. “We will remain diligent throughout this process to ensure Rollex complies with all contractual OSHA requirements.”

    The union was present when an OSHA compliance officer investigated the facility last month after an employee was injured on the job. The company has been cited for OSHA violations in the past, so the government body was quick to respond.

    Rollex Again Ordered to Make Changes for Member Safety
    The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) again has ordered Rollex Corporation to correct safety violations and pay a corresponding penalty of $13,500. Teamsters Local 727 representatives are insisting that the changes be made immediately.

    Local 727 represents about 100 workers at the aluminum soffit and steel siding manufacturer located in Elk Grove Village, Ill.

    “Member safety is of the utmost importance,” said John Coli Jr., President of Local 727. “The union will see this through to ensure Rollex complies with all OSHA requirements.”

    Last year, OSHA also cited Rollex for numerous violations and ordered the company to employ a third-party safety and compliance company and to hold frequent safety meetings with Local 727 members. Rollex also paid $78,000 in OSHA financial penalties in 2015.
