International Workers’ Memorial Day Activities in the Philippines
INTERNATIONAL WORKERS’ MEMORIAL DAY 2023
We mark this year’s International Workers’ Memorial Day with the theme: Mas Ligtas ‘Pag May Unyon! Unionized Workplaces are Safer Workplaces! Organize and mobilize for workers’ safety, health, and rights!
We remember all the workers who have died due to unsafe workplaces and call for justice for all victims of OSH rights violations. We also aim to raise awareness on OSH as a fundamental right and principle at work and how unions can make workplaces safer.
We invite you to take part in our Workers’ Memorial Day 2023 Activities on April 28:
• Just a Minute Silent Protest
One-minute silent protest and pledge towards fighting for workers’ health, safety, and rights.
Silent Protests can be conducted in workplaces (canteen during breaktimes, company gates before or after shifts, shuttle bus pick up areas before travelling), schools, hospitals, communities, homes, and other spaces of gathering.
• Remembrance and Resistance: A Workers’ Memorial Day Solidarity Event and Open Mic Night, 7:00 PM onwards at Human Rights and People Empowerment Center, Fil Garcia Tower, Kalayaan Avenue, Quezon City
An evening of performances and solidarity to commemorate the lives of workers who died while on duty, calling for justice and action towards fighting for workers’ health, safety, and rights. This event is co-presented by Mayday Multimedia, Human Rights and People Empowerment Center and UP Manila Political Science Program NSTP students.

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.
