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,

28 April 2017 theme CONFIRMED: Unsafe and unfair –discrimination on the job hurts us all

Dear friends,

Thanks a lot for your positive feedback on the theme for 28th April 2017. This time, and always under the broad umbrella of “unions make work safer”, we are inviting trade unions to consider addressing all actions needed to protect the health and safety of the most vulnerable in our workplaces, due among others, to gender, origins, class and/or sexual orientation. We’d be very pleased to get any background documents/research on these issues you might have developed in your union to help elaborating the international background document for the day.

Here are some suggested taglines:

  • Inequality is a pain in the workplace
  • Safe work for women, safe work for all
    Workplace safety is a class issue
  • Occupational disease is a class issue
  • Profit and loss: When irresponsible firms put production first, workers can pay a deadly price
  • Racism hurts at work
  • Fair enough? We are all sickened by inequality at work
  • Inequality at work makes us sick
  • United we stand: Divided we cough, ache, limp, itch, wheeze and die

We have already received confirmation from the TUC UK  on their willingness to take on this issue calling to “protect those hidden from safety” and focus on the hidden and new GIG economies, the risks faced by migrant workers and the issue of gender.

The AFL-CIO in the US has already released a poster that refers to our common theme as well:

Social media: you can start using #iwmd17
in Twitter and posting news in the Facebook Group

Please ensure you send me details of your planned activities, any resources and artwork you produce for 28 April 2017. And please remember to give us your email to be included in the 28th April e-list.
