Currently, the Department of Labor is soliciting comments concerning the collection of data about Employer Adoption of Voluntary Health and Safety Standards. A copy of the proposed Information Collection Request (ICR) can be obtained by contacting the office listed below in the addressee section of this notice.

This document provides notice of the declination of coverage over the working conditions of aircraft cabin crewmembers onboard aircraft in operation by all twenty-two (22) OSHA-approved State Plans which cover the private sector. On March 26, 2014, OSHA began applying three safety and health standards to the working conditions of aircraft cabin crewmembers on aircraft in operation. Section 18 of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, 29 U.S.C. 667 (OSH Act) grants the OSHA-approved State Plans the authority to regulate the working conditions of these employees to the extent consistent with the Federal Aviation Act. Subsequently, OSHA required the State Plans to either elect to amend their State Plans to cover aircraft cabin crewmembers on aircraft in operation, or to decline to exercise such authority, in which case coverage would remain a Federal OSHA responsibility. All affected State Plans declined. OSHA is hereby amending the State Plans' coverage in all of the twenty-two (22) OSHA- approved State Plans covering the private sector to reflect the declination of State Plan coverage, and the continuation of Federal OSHA enforcement authority over the working conditions of aircraft cabin crewmembers while they are onboard aircraft in operation, and notifying affected employers and employees of this action.

Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-12-17
Agency: Department of Labor, Office of Labor-Management Standards
The Department of Labor (Department) proposes to promulgate a rule governing intermediate bodies that are wholly composed of public sector organizations but are subordinate to national or international labor organizations that are covered by the Labor-Management Reporting and Disclosure Act of 1959 (LMRDA or Act). Under the proposed rule, such intermediate bodies would now be covered by the LMRDA, and would be required to file the Form LM-2 and Form LM-3 annual union financial reports.
