Workers’ Memorial Day is a time to remember those who died on the job or suffered workplace injuries, while raising awareness to prevent future illnesses, injuries and deaths. Respect for health and safety is respect for ALL workers.
From opposing gun violence in our schools to the very real impact climate change is already having on workers and communities, we need to make sure that worker health and safety rights are guaranteed to all, in all workplaces. This year, we renew our commitment to fight for safe jobs for all!
Save Our Safeguards!
¡Salvar Nuestras Salvaguardas!
Rain OR Shine!
