Workers' Memorial Day is every April 28th - an international day of action and of remembrance for workers killed, disabled, injured or made unwell by their work.
Workers' Memorial Day’s purpose is to:
Remember the Dead, Fight for the Living
That can best be done by building trade union organisation, and campaigning for stricter enforcement with higher penalties for breaches of health & safety laws.
