Workers Memorial Day events put focus on safety

(From an article published at Workday Minnesota)

ST. PAUL – Every year on April 28, unions observe Workers Memorial Day to remember those who have suffered and died on the job and to renew the effort for safe workplaces.

“This year the struggle continues to create good jobs in this country that are safe and healthy and to ensure the freedom of workers to form unions and, through their unions, to speak out and bargain for respect and a better future,” the Minnesota AFL-CIO said. “It’s time for our country to fulfill the promise of safe jobs for all.”

April 28 is the anniversary of the day Congress passed the Occupational Safety and Health Act to set and enforce standards for workplace safety.

Events are planned throughout the state to commemorate Workers Memorial Day. For a complete schedule of events and locations,  read the entire article at Workday Minnesota.
