United Steelworkers - El Paso Asarco Workers Sessions
USW will be collecting some information and talking to the former workers at several sessions during the week of August 5. The session will include:
·         Hazard mapping: We will use layouts of the plant pre 1992 and post 1993. Former workers will mark the area/areas they believe the Encycle products where used and mark the area/areas they worked in with the approximate timeframe they work in those area.
·         Body mapping: Workers will mark their types and locations of illnesses on a basic drawing of the body.
·         USW health & safety trainers who are leading the sessions will pair each worker's hazard map and body map so we can look for similarities in illnesses and the areas of work within the plant.
These sessions will held at:
