International Workers’ Memorial Day, Sunday 28 April

Albert Square Manchester, 12noon – 1pm



Every year on April 28th, workers, unions and families around the world stand together under the united banner of ‘remember the dead and fight for the living’.

It is a time when we remember the 51,000 deaths and over 621,000 injuries and the millions who are made ill by work every year in Britain.

Almost all workplace deaths are caused by employers’ negligence and the most vulnerable in our workplaces are more at risk of being made ill, injured or killed.  We know that workers in trade union organised workplaces are twice as safe.

The theme this year is ‘Taking control – removing dangerous substances from work’
