A very interesting April 29 article on the website of the Washington Center for Equitable Growth and reproduced on LaborStart.org details how at union-organized shops these rules are more likely to be enforced than at places where there are no unions. Aside from the usual collective bargaining issues like wages and working conditions, the unions at these shops often take pains to ensure that labor laws and regulations like safety and health issues are realities, not just paper rules that are ignored.
