Remember the Dead and Fight for the Living!
Today, Wednesday 28th April is International Workers Memorial day 2021.
UNISON supports the minute’s silence at 12 noon to remember workers across the world who have lost their lives doing their jobs.
The Covid pandemic makes this particularly relevant. Workers in health and front line services of all sorts have put their safety on the line for all of us – often without proper protection. No one should have to suffer unecessarily because of poor conditions, inadequate health and safety, ruthless and penny-pinching employers or failure by government.
