Apr. 28: Remember Working People Lost on the Job

We join the Connecticut AFL-CIO each year on April 28 to observe Workers Memorial Day and remember our sisters and brothers who died while on the job. As politicians and their special interest backers step up their attacks on unions, this year's commemoration is also about defending the right to a voice for all working people:

WHEN: Friday, April 28 beginning at 1:00PM.
WHERE: Gather at the Workers’ Memorial along Trinity Street near the arch in Hartford’s Bushnell Park (street parking is available in the area or choose the West Street lot at Elm Street)

The ceremony will include a reading of the names of those we've lost over the past year to honor their memory. Click here to share any names to be read during the program.

The event is more than a remembrance; it’s a reminder that an attack on unions is an attack on worksite health and safety. Join us in Hartford in two weeks and recommit to the freedom for all working people to unite and negotiate better and more secure futures.

In solidarity,
