OSHA citations against Hershey’s subcontractors Exel and SHS

On Feb. 21, 2012, the Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) cited and penalized Hershey’s subcontractors Exel and SHS for violations of federal safety and health law at the Hershey’s chocolate packing plant in Palmyra, PA.

The OSHA investigation began after hundreds of student guestworker members of the NGA went on strike from the plant in August 2011 to expose brutal conditions, sub-minimum wage pay, and threats and retaliation by supervisors and labor recruiters.
