International Workers Day Memorial 28 April 2017 11am Stratford E15
Every year more people are killed at work than in wars. Most don't die of mystery ailments, or in tragic "accidents". They die because an employer decided their safety just wasn't that important a priority. Workers’ Memorial Day (WMD) commemorates those workers.
It is also a campaigning day for improved health and safety at the workplace.
The UNISON London Housing Associations branch and other Newham trade unions will be laying a wreath this Friday 28 April 2017 11am at the memorial at Three Mills Green, Stratford, E15. All welcome.
