Mold & hazardous air particles in building 262 - no managment response

Why is it that 643 ELSG management refuses to correct the toxic work conditions in the basement of building 262? Why is management ignoring all the illnesses? Mold in many areas has been reported and all Civil Engineering does is cover it up and hope it doesn't come back. They are not removing the mold. Although many workers have had severe illnesses linked to the replacement of ceiling tiles, management has refused to permanently relocate the sick employees out of the area, particularly the contractors. When a governement employee goes to the Union for assistance or when the sick employee voices health concerns, management is quick to brand them as trouble makers, making many sick people afraid to come forward. Those that do speak up are forever branded. Management did have Safety & Health and OSHA come in, but only after a visit to the Union. They ran humidity tests but would not try to determine the real cause. And to top it off, management waited for 3 months for the "dirty air" to settle and is now holding a "ribbon cutting ceremony" to declare that the basement is now a healthy work environment. Is this a political management stunt? If it's so healthy, why do people have asthma attacks, severe coughing, rashes, etc when entering the work area? Why are people wearing respiratory masks? Apparently we were all under the mistaken impression that management should help resolve unhealthy work conditions.
