Workers Memorial Day, April 28, is just around the corner. Events will be held in communities and workplaces across the country. In addition, trade unionists around the globe are also observing Workers Memorial Day.
The theme of this year’s Workers Memorial Day is “Safe Jobs. Every Worker’s Right.” We are highlighting the progress made, the need to protect hard-won protections from threats and rollbacks and work still to be done.
To assist you with your planned events or activities, we have prepared a Workers Memorial Day Toolkit. It includes talking points, sample materials for media outreach, worker safety and health facts, state-by-state safety and health data and other information. It can be downloaded at:
Please take a minute to share your plans for Workers Memorial Day events, by going to the AFL-CIO website and posting your event.
Please do not hesitate to contact us at 202-637-5366 if you have questions or need further information.
