Unions speak out for safe jobs in USA

Four decades ago, the US Congress passed the Occupational Safety and Health Act, promising every worker the right to a safe job.  But despite substantial wins by unions and allies, many job hazards remain unregulated and uncontrolled. As a result, each year thousands of workers are killed and millions more injured or diseased because of their jobs. And when this is added to the attacks to regulation by conservative parties and businesses, the stakes for workers are even higher. This is why the AFL-CIO is calling on unions to mobilise this 28th April, so that good and safe jobs are a reality for all US workers.

US unions are invited to post the details about their events here:
