Family members, friends and colleagues who have lost a loved one at work or experienced a workplace injury will join with union members, delegates and the community to mark International Workers’ Memorial Day on Saturday the 28th of April.
Unions Tasmania will host a service in both Launceston and Hobart to commemorate this important day. Vigils, services and ceremonies will be held across the country and the world to honour the memory of those who went to work and did not return home.
“It means a lot to the family members and friends that we join together and mark this day where we remember those who died or were injured on the job. Tomorrow is also a day where we recommit as a community to always putting safety at work first,” said Jessica Munday, Secretary of Unions Tasmania.
