International Workers' Memorial Day

28 April 2020

In a message from the Wales TUC we were reminded that the ‘coronavirus crisis has hit our workplaces hard’.

Today, Tuesday 28th April, is International Workers' Memorial Day when there will be an opportunity to remember those who have died at work and we campaign for safe conditions for all employees.

Join in a moment of silence.

At 11.00 am on Tuesday 28 April we urge you to take a moment to pay tribute to all employees who have lost their lives from the coronavirus or other work-related illness or injury. This initiative is supported by the Welsh Government and is a great opportunity to remember the sacrifice of workers around the world and in our communities.

If you’re working from home you could stand on your doorstep to mark the minute’s silence as a street or community. You can help spread the word about the minute’s silence by asking your family, friends and neighbours to take part.

UCAC will report the event on social media.
