Gibraltar: Chief Minister honours workers in Memorial Day and International Day message


The Chief Minister says we owe a huge debt of gratitude to the workers who have built our community, our economy and our democracy. In his Workers’ Memorial Day and International Workers’ Day message, Fabian Picardo reaffirms his government’s commitment to ensuring every worker has a safe, healthy and fair working environment.

He says workers in Gibraltar’s economy have faced many challenges and hardships, especially with Brexit and the COVID-19 pandemic, which he says have disrupted our lives and livelihoods.
