Unions call on workers to #standforsafety in Australia

For this 28th April, all the regional structures of the Australian Congress of Trade Unions (ACTU) will be commemorating workers who lost their lives and health at work, and mobilise so these tragedies do not happen again. Events are already scheduled in Hobart and Launceston (Tasmania), Brisbane (Queensland), Melbourne (Victoria), Darling Harbour and Ourimbah (NSW), where memorial services will be hold.

An interesting initiative has been taken by the Victoria Trades Hall Council, who is calling on put out of the windows a pair of shoes, expressing solidarity for those workers that could not come home from work.

Details on events can be found in the  calendar of events. For more information on ACTU preparations for this 28th April, please contact Jenny Holden jholden@actu.org.au
