Greater Madison County Federation of Labor
We invite you to join Workers Memorial Day Service to honor our fallen union brother’s and sister’s on Monday, April 28, 2014 begins at 7:00 p.m. at Gordon Moore Park, Highway 140 in Alton.
Every year on April 28th, the Unions of the AFL-CIO and all unions throughout the world observe Workers Memorial Day. Each year thousands of works are killed and millions more are injured on the job.
More than three decades ago, Congress passed the Occupational Safety and Health Act, promising that every worker as the right to a safe workplace. Unions have fought hard to help make that promise a reality saving hundred of thousands of lives and prevented millions of workplace injuries.
