Transport for Wales is marking International Workers’ Memorial Day (IWMD) in solidarity with its trade union partners.
Every year, the trade union movement unites to remember those who have lost their lives at work, or from work-related injury and illnesses. This year is particularly poignant due to the ongoing covid-19 pandemic, in which key workers including TfW colleagues continue to work on the front-line, risking their lives to keep the country moving.
At 11:00 on 28 April, TfW colleagues throughout Wales and the Borders will be taking part in a minute’s silence to remember those who have lost their lives, and to pay tribute to those undertaking vital front-line work on rail services and in other industries.
James Price, Transport for Wales CEO said:
“On International Workers’ Memorial Day, we are proud at TfW to stand with our trade union partners and remember those who have lost their lives.
“We are currently facing testing times and our front-line staff are continuously showing dedication and courage to help assist the country. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank them all and to also extend my thanks to other key workers across different industries.”
