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
The online program will also be livestreamed on our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/Iohsad.Philippines. Thanks and see you on April 27!

Philippines: Covid safety calls on 28 April

April 28 is International Workers’ Memorial Day.
We remember those who have died due to the pandemic and government negligence, those who have laid their lives in the cause to improve and save workers’ lives. We mourn the dead, consolidate our ranks, and collectively demand:
1. Mass testing and aggressive contact tracing in workplaces!
2. Free and safe vaccine for all workers!
3. Classify Covid-19 as an occupational disease!
4. Cash aid for all!
5. Pass the Paid Pandemic Leave Bill now!
Join the national day of action on April 28, 2021. Wear black shirt and join the social media protest by posting on your individual and organizational social media pages with our demands. At 6:00 PM, join the nationally coordinated candle lighting protest in your homes or offices, and post photos or videos on your pages. These activities will serve as build up actions for the upcoming Labour Day.
Remember the Dead, Fight for the Living! Save Workers’ Lives!
Occupational Safety and Health is a Fundamental Right!
Workers’ Safety from Covid-19 is Government Responsibility!
