Today I had a meeting with one of my employers health and safety team to discuss what we can do to mark Workers Memorial Day on 28 April 2022.
The international theme for this year is that "Occupational health & safety is a fundamental right at work".
My UNISON branch will be holding our remembrance event again with hopefully West Ham MP, Lyn Brown, at the "Clasping Hands" memorial in Three Mills Green in Newham and I will urge all union activists to try and mark this important day at their workplace in some meaningful way.
UNISON activists can download this poster and place on any union notice boards (physical or virtual) https://www.unison.org.uk/content/uploads/2022/03/International-Workers-Memorial-Day-Poster-1.pdf. There is one currently in our Bow office and I will send to all our activists.
