ALTON — The public is invited to a Workers Memorial Day Service to honor fallen union members at 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 28, at Gordon Moore Park, 4550 College Ave.
Every year on April 28, the AFL-CIO and unions worldwide 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.
