International Workers’ Memorial Day

JOIN US ON APRIL 28TH for the International Workers’ Memorial Day / Workers’ Mourning Day.

This is the international day of remembrance and action for workers killed, disabled, injured or made unwell by their work.

Workers, migrant, precarious, low paid, key workers, are facing an unprecedented global crisis. They are paying for the failures of a neoliberal system with their lives. Our members and their families are facing a lack of PPE, being forced to go to work, being sacked, locked out, not being paid in full or at all, are going hungry, being made homeless and dying from coronavirus.

On Workers’ Mourning Day tell government and employers what we need to stop the pandemic at work and survive another year, tweet and share our information here:

Tweet #1, with demand video:

“April 28 is #IWMD20. Precarious, low paid and migrant workers are suffering during #COVID19. We demand more from our government to protect us from injury and sickness. #StopThePandemicAtWork #ShutTheSites #PayEveryWorker @UVWunion’s 9 demands here:”

Tweet #2, with #StopTheSlaughter gif:

“Bosses like @StGeorgesUni & @JPCCleaning are failing to provide sufficient PPE & sick pay. #keyworkers facing deadly #COVID19 consequences are disproportionately BAME & migrants. This #IWMD20 we demand employers protect ALL workers. #StopThePandemicAtWork #StopTheSlaughter #PayEveryWorker”
