Workers Memorial Day is Thursday, April 28, 2022. Decades of struggle by working people and our unions have improved working conditions and made jobs safer, but it has not been enough. This year we are coming together to strengthen our rights and protections to ensure everyone can come home safely at the end of a work shift - and without chronic illnesses from toxic exposures at work.
CUB President Antoinette Ryan-Johnson asks all CUB members to wear blue if possible. If you can, take photos with other union members and coworkers to share with the union to raise awareness on social media.
There is also a virtual Workers Memorial Wall and will be a live streaming event by the US Department of Labor and the United Support and Memorial for Workplace Fatalities at 1:00 p.m. EST on the 28th.
