We invite you to join Workers Memorial Day Service to honor our fallen union brothers and sisters on Tuesday, April 28, 2015 at 7 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 workers 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 has the right to a safe workplace. Unions have fought hard to help make that promise a reality saving hundreds of thousands of lives and prevented millions of workplace injuries.
