On 24 April 2016 workers in Bangladesh and Pakistan remembered the dead and demanded improved factory safety and punishment to those responsible for the tragedy. IndustriALL website
Every day, workers around the world are injured and killed while trying to earn a living. In Alberta, workplace deaths number in the hundreds per year.
On April 28th we pause to remember those injured and killed while working, and re-commit to improving conditions so further deaths will not occur.
The last year has sadly seen its share of workplace deaths and injuries. However, there is some good news. Alberta has joined other provinces in Canada in protecting agricultural workers under labour and health and safety laws. In the first three months of 2016, WCB Alberta has approved 159 applications for compensation from farmworkers – applications that would have been denied last year.
There is still much more to be done. Workplace deaths are preventable. Please keep working to make our jobs safer.

On 28th April, all Brazilian trade union confederations will commemorate the victims of occupational diseases and accidents by highlighting the case of the Mariana industrial accident, where more than sixteen workers died and which represents the biggest environmental catastrophe in Brazilian history. In November 2015, the collapse of a mining dam in the Brazilian state of Minas Gerais led to the spread of between 40-62m cubic metres of the water and sediment from iron ore extraction at an open-cast mine operated by Samarco, a joint venture between mining giants BHP Billiton and Vale. The health and environmental consequences of this disaster are huge.
Joining the international theme, trade unions will point out to deficiencies in OHS law and lack of compliance, as well as the need to secure good union representation for workers in the mining sector.
Activities will start tomorrow 26th April, with a visit to the Mariana site, followed by a seminar on the 27th and end on the 28th with a public audience in the Minas Gerais parliament.
The programme and full background for the day can be found here: http://metalurgicos.org.br/wp-content/uploads/folder-28-de-abril.pdf
