Congress, alongside trade unions around the world, has for many years celebrated Workers' Memorial Day on April 28th. In 2015 our commemoration was given official backing. Minister for Business and Employment, Ged Nash T.D called on the HSA, employers and public bodies to join with Congress in making the day a truly national event henceforth. In 2017, we continue our partnership with HSA, Ibec and CIF in marking the day and trying to increase consciousness of the importance of health and safety.
Congress is asking all of its affiliated unions, trades councils and the Congress Centres Network to get involved in marking the day. Some suggestions are:
April 28th presents an important opportunity to remember and to consolidate everyone’s focus around a single day. Please mark the date in your calendar and make the commitment to contribute to this most important challenge.
Congress is asking all unions, trades councils and centres to actively support the event and to let us know what you plan; or let us know afterwards what you have done. Drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org
