Tuesday, April 28 is the labour movement’s most solemn day. The International Day of Mourning remembers those workers killed or injured on the job while continuing to fight for improved safety in our workplaces.
The Waterloo Regional Labour Council and Canada’s unions continue to call for better enforcement of related legislations. They also call on employers and governments to do more to prevent such fatalities from happening in the first place.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 Day of Mourning event is being planned in a manner that allows for physical distancing. Continue to follow this page for further information as the date approaches.
