Workers’ Memorial Day – Saturday 28th April 2018
Workers’ Memorial Day is an international day of remembrance and action for workers killed, disabled, injured or made unwell at their work.
The purpose behind Workers’ Memorial Day has always been to “remember the dead, fight for the living” and employers and employees alike are asked to focus on both areas, to not only remember all those killed through work but also take action to ensure that such tragedies are not repeated.
This years theme for the day is ‘Unionised Workplaces are Safer Workplaces’ and will focus the huge difference that unions make in preventing deaths in the workplace!
