New NDLON Report sheds light on day laborers as second responders in climate disasters!

This week, the National Day Laborer Organizing Network launched its new REPORT: “Recovering from Climate Disasters: Immigrant Day Laborers as Second Responders.”

The report launch is part of a week-long series of actions and events in commemoration of #WorkersMemorialDay #IWMD22.

After Hurricane Ida hit New Orleans in 2021, NDLON’s Disaster Response Brigade of worker-trainers conducted outreach and training across the impacted area, surveying day laborers on wages, health hazards, and awareness of their rights, while also sharing resources and documenting the realities for working people on the ground in the midst of the recovery.

The climate crisis is exacerbating a crisis of abuse and unsafe work conditions for workers nationwide – and we need to respond and organize accordingly.

Check out the report and share your support for #SecondResponders on social media!

Australia’s national union organisation ACTU has released a new report: “Morrison Missing In Action on Work Health and Safety”. The report is available online.
Australia’s premier Scott Morrison has overseen “an appalling 32 per cent  increase in workplace fatalities and an 8 per cent increase in workplace injuries since 2018.”

PHILIPPINES  We mark this year’s International Workers’ Memorial Day by amplifying our call: end the culture of neglect of workers’ safety and health! Workers’ lives should be prioritized over profits. We join workers from around the world in remembering workers who have died due to unsafe work. We also add our voices to the collective call to recognize occupational safety and health as a fundamental right at work.
There is no better time than now to recognize OSH as a fundamental right at work. Together with the freedom of association and collective bargaining, abolition of child labor, elimination of forced labor and elimination of discrimination at work, OSH should be a standard for decent working conditions.
Join the online webinar for the campaign for workers’ safety and health demands on April 27, Wednesday at 10:00 AM — organized by IOHSAD together with the NSTP students from the UP Manila Political Science Program. To join, please fill up the zoom registration link here: https://bit.ly/IWMD2022
