Workers Memorial Day 2016 Events


Too many of our brothers and sisters are killed or seriously injured on the job each year, while others die or become permanently disabled because of work-related illnesses and diseases.

Workers Memorial Day on April 28th is the day set aside to remember our fallen colleagues, as well as to renew our resolve to demand safe environments for all workers. April 28th was chosen because it is the anniversary of the formation of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.

Here is the list of Workers Memorial Day events to honor these workers:
