April 28 is International Workers’ Memorial Day or Workers’ Mourning Day. This is the international day of remembrance and action for workers killed, disabled, injured or made unwell by their work. More here: https://www.ituc-csi.org/28April2020
The National COSH 2020 Dirty Dozen — Special Coronavirus Edition puts a spotlight on employers who put workers and communities at risk from unsafe practices. This year, we focus on employers who are failing to protect workers and the public from exposure to COVID-19, as well as other hazards across a range of industries and occupations.
Today is International Workers’ Memorial Day. Join us, and some special guests, as we pay our respects to workers killed in the workplace over the past year. Every worker deserves to come home safely at the end of the day, and on this day we pledge to remember the dead and fight like hell for the living.
Current circumstances preclude us from being together on this day of remembrance, but we are together in spirit and in solidarity as we conduct this year’s ceremony online. VTHC
28 April marks International Workers’ Memorial Day.
Please join us in honouring the memory of those brave workers we have lost to coronavirus by observing a minute’s silence at 11am.
Together, we will remember them.
