Workers Memorial Day 2011 - Remember the Dead, Fight for the Living

This year marks the first anniversary of the UK’s official recognition of Workers’ Memorial Day, which is held on 28 April each year. UNISON's message - 'cuts cost lives' is clear and timely. http://www.unison.org.uk/safety/pages_view.asp?did=4783

The TUC reports on various activities being held across the country. They range from rallies and services to workplace meetings. Most will also feature a minute's silence at noon, or a suitable time.: http://www.tuc.org.uk/workplace/tuc-19529-f0.cfm

The Hazards website has a great collection of union and safety campaigners' artwork to promote the day world wide: http://www.hazards.org/wmd/images.htm
