This year"s Workers" Memorial Day theme is "Safe and Healthy Work for All" with a sub-theme continuing last years focus of "Employer Accountability".


When all those who are responsible for workers health and safety are truly held to account, there will be a significant improvement in the work-life and health of workers.


The purpose behind Workers" Memorial Day has always been to "remember the dead: fight for the living" and unions are asked to focus on both areas, by considering memorials to all those killed through work but at the same time ensuring that such tragedies are not repeated.


That can best be done by building trade union organisation, and campaigning for stricter enforcement with higher penalties for breaches of health & safety laws.



See the TUC website for more details of events.
