International Workers Memorial Day

Workers Memorial Day
Spread the love

Every year on 28th April, all around the world the trade union movement unites to mark International Workers’ Memorial Day (#IWMD20). 

This year, the TUC is asking that we remember all those who have lost their lives at work, including the thousands of frontline workers who have died from coronavirus.

While we may not be able to attend memorial events which usually take place on IWMD, we can still join together collectively online. 

Join the call to take part in a moment of collective remembrance and solidarity and to hear how we can organise for safer working conditions for all. 

Join us to renew our call to ‘remember the dead, fight for the living’.
