Save the Date: 2017 Workers Memorial Day

On April 28, the unions of the Connecticut AFL-CIO observe Workers Memorial Day to remember those who have suffered and died on the job and to renew the fight for safe jobs.

This year we will come together to defend hard-won victories by working people from attacks by anti-worker legislators and business groups. We will commit to fighting until all workers have safe jobs and the freedom to form unions to seek a better future.

The Occupational Safety and Health Act and Mine Safety and Health Act promise workers the right to a safe job. Unions and our allies have fought hard to make that promise a reality – winning protections that have made jobs safer, saved hundreds of thousands of lives and prevented millions of workplace injuries and illnesses.

But our work is not done. Nationally, 150 workers die each and every day as a result of workplace injuries and diseases.

And recent attacks at the federal level have threatened the safety and health gains we have fought so hard to win. We must fight back. Join us on April 28.
