Philippines: Building workers protest low paid, unsafe work on 28 April

 

 

The National Union of Building and Construction Workers (NUBCW) commemorated the International Workers Memorial Day 2022 last 24 April 2022 in Quezon City, Philippines. In attendance are NUBCW local members from Evergreen Mfg Corp. Regular project-based Employees Union (EMCRPEU), Women Welders Guild (WWG), and Association of Women Workers in the Construction Industry (AWWCI). NUBCW Secretary General, Santiago Nolla, lead the discussion on the current status of Filipino workers, and the Occupational Health and Safety laws in the Philippines. The members also echoed their concerns that most workers in the Philippines are underpaid yet the work is hard and dangerous. Women workers see that discrimination and harassment are still rampant, especially in the construction industry, that is why mainstreaming women in the construction industry plays an important role in eradicating this problem. #iwmd22

Germany: Am heutigen Workers‘ Memorial Day erinnern wir an alle Arbeitnehmer innen, die aufgrund ihrer Arbeit erkrankt

A post shared by Gaby Bischoff (@gabybischoff)

2021 wurden alleine zwischen Januar und September 77.115 Arbeitsunfälle auf deutschen Baustellen gemeldet. 69 Bauarbeiter*innen sind tödlich verunglückt. Am heutigen Workers‘ Memorial Day erinnern wir an alle Arbeitnehmer*innen, die aufgrund ihrer Arbeit erkrankt oder gestorben sind.

Der Europäische Gewerkschaftsbund @etucces ruft heute dazu auf, bis 2030 das Ziel von 0 Todesfällen durch Arbeitsunfälle oder arbeitsbedingte Erkrankungen zu erreichen. Obwohl die tödlichen Arbeitsunfälle in der EU abnehmen, steigt die Zahl der Arbeitnehmer*innen, die ihre Arbeit krank macht.

Im Beschäftigungs- und Sozialausschuss (EMPL) haben wir uns dafür eingesetzt, Arbeitnehmer*innen besser vor krebserregenden Stoffen zu schützen. Es bleibt trotzdem viel Handlungsbedarf, da beispielsweise die Gesundheitsbelastung bei der Arbeit unter freiem Himmel durch extreme Wettererscheinungen (Hitze, Unwetter) steigt. Aber auch die mentale Belastung für Arbeitnehmer*innen in den klassischen Bürojobs steigt durch die zunehmende Entgrenzung von Arbeit und das Gefühl, ständig erreichbar sein zu müssen.

Ich unterstütze die Forderung nach #ZeroDeathAtWork und werde daran arbeiten, dass wir den europäischen Rahmen für Arbeits- und Gesundheitsschutz verbessern. #iwmd22

Remember the dead, fight like hell for the living
