Workers' Memorial Week

During Workers’ Memorial Week we remember those who lost their lives, were injured, or suffered illnesses at work and renew our commitment to fight for safe workplaces.  This is a week of action planned around Workers’ Memorial Day, which is commemorated on April 28th each year.

Worker leaders, organizers, surviving family members and activists around the world come together during Workers’ Memorial Week to take action. Together, we remember those who have lost their lives, been injured, or suffered illnesses at work. Together, we renew our fire to fight for safe workplaces. Workers’ Memorial Week is a chance to encourage healing, build worker power and community, and escalate your campaigns.
