On Workers' Memorial Day, April 28, union members and allies will be remembering those who have been killed, injured and sickened on the job. Together, we'll focus on what needs to be done to make our jobs safer.

Here are some ways to observe Workers' Memorial Day:

  • Hold a candlelight vigil, memorial service or moment of silence to remember those who have died on the job and to highlight safety and health issues in your community.
  • Conduct training and workshops for workers and the community on reporting job hazards and knowing their workplace rights.
  • Create a memorial at a workplace or in the community where workers have been killed on the job.
