Unions call for making workers’ protection a higher priority in USA

The United States trade union confederation AFL-CIO launched its annual Death on the Job Report, showing the raising toll of occupational deaths, diseases and injuries for US workers. The report is available on the AFL-CIO website, along with infographics of highlights from the report.http://www.aflcio.org/Issues/Job-Safety/Death-on-the-Job-Report

In addition, nearly 100 events are being held around the US to remember workers killed and injured on the job and to renew the fight for safe jobs. http://www.aflcio.org/Issues/Job-Safety/WorkersMemorialDay
