Workers Memorial Day


Remember the Dead – Fight for the Living

International Workers’ Memorial Day is held on the 28th April each year. This special day commemorates the many thousands of people who have died as a result of their work. Workers’ Memorial Day is when workers around the world remember the dead and campaign for improved workplace safety to protect the living.

In conjunction with the European Trades Union Confederation (ETUC) this year the focus will be on addressing exposure to hazardous substances. In the EU we demand progress with measures to deal with carcinogenic substances and enforceable exposure limits for 50 of the most toxic chemicals for cancer and for fertility and pregnancy.

Workers' Memorial Day is also an excellent day to highlight the work of the trade
unions in addressing health and safety at the workplace to non- members.

Attached is a poster and leaflet publicising ETUC action on 28 April.
