Scotland: Join the STUC International Workers’ Memorial Day 1 minute silence on Wednesday 28 April

STUC International Workers Memorial Day Commemoration, Wednesday 28 April at 10:45am

Every year more people are killed at work than in wars. Most don’t die of mystery ailments, or in tragic “accidents”. They die because an employer decided their safety just wasn’t that important a priority. International Workers’ Memorial Day (IWMD) 28 April commemorates those workers.

This year’s event is made even more poignant due to the work-related loss of life due to the COVID Pandemic.

Chair: Rozanne Foyer: STUC General Secretary
Pauline Rourke: CWU
Gary Smith: GMB
Phyllis Craig: Action for Asbestos Scotland
Professor Andy Waterson, Scottish Hazards 

We will be holding a 1 minute silence at 11am.  Register
