Jornada Internacional de Conmemoración de los Trabajadores, 28 de abril de 2018 – Anuncio del tema

La CSI propone como tema general para la Jornada Internacional de Conmemoración de los trabajadores y trabajadoras fallecidos y lesionados, el 28 de abril de 2018, “Los lugares de trabajo organizados son lugares de trabajo más seguros”. Las variantes de este tema podrían incluir “Los sindicatos hacen que los lugares de trabajo sean más seguros y más sanos” y “La organización sindical salva vidas”.

En las próximas semanas, la CSI elaborará material para apoyar la preparación de materiales de campaña. Para ayudar en esta labor, buscamos muestras de medidas sindicales que propicien mejoras a nivel del lugar de trabajo, de la legislación o los sectores, así como los beneficios económicos y humanos que aporta esta medida de protección. Envíe los detalles al Asesor de Salud y Seguridad de la CSI, Rory O’Neill al correo editor@hazards.org

La actualización de las páginas web dedicadas a este tema, www.28april.org, dará comienzo a medida que se confirmen los materiales, las actividades y los eventos.

Naturalmente, las organizaciones afiliadas tienen la libertad de adaptar o modificar el tema para adaptarse a las prioridades locales.

Sin otro particular, reciba un fraternal saludo,

Britain: What are you planning for Workers’ Memorial Day?

The TUC is going to start listing events for the 28 April 2018 Workers’ Memorial Day. The theme is “Unionised workplaces are safer workplaces.” The national union body is urging organisation to send details of all local, regional or national events to be included on the online listing. According to the TUC: “As Workers’ Memorial Day is on a Saturday this year it may be that some workplaces will aim to have the two-minutes’ silence or other event on Friday 27 April. However other events should still be scheduled for 28 April.”
