Workers who fear they’re unsafe in the train tunnel they’re building under downtown have a duty to report their concerns, Ottawa’s transit boss John Manconi said Monday, after another worker was injured on the weekend and union leaders said they’re worried.
A worker in the light-rail tunnel got whacked in the head with a heavy hose on Saturday and went to the hospital. It was the second incident in the tunnel in a week. Last November, workers were trapped and one was slightly hurt when a chunk of rebar came off a tunnel wall. These cases are adding up, as labour leader Sean McKenny said Monday.http://ottawacitizen.com/news/local-news/reevely-the-lrt-tunnel-is-safe-probably
