Abstract
Areas where occupational physicians and organized labor interact are outlined, and the need for cooperation of both for the benefit of the working man and woman is emphasized. Areas discussed include medical absenteeism, accident and sickness insurance, workers' compensation insurance, OSHA compliance, the role of the union steward and the supervisor in health and safety, industrial hygiene and toxicology, health insurance, medical limitations and job restrictions, confidentiality of medical records, the occupational physician and the local union leadership, alcoholism, the labor management agreement and the occupational physician, and the ethics of the occupational physician. The confidence gap between some occupational physicians and labor is recognized and is considered to be in part due to an unrealistic viewpoint of the potential of preventive medicine. Cooperation between the physician, labor leader, and businessman are held to be dependent on taking emotionalism out of the situation. (Contract No. 210-76-0118)
