April 28th is a solemn day for workers, as we gather to remember workers who have died through workplace incidents or occupational disease. We recognize and are saddened by the pain and suffering felt by families and loved ones. Read the statement from NLFL President Mary Shortall here.
April 28th is the labour movement’s most solemn day. Across our province local unions and district labour councils have organized ceremonies of remembrance where workers, friends and families of fallen workers, employers and community representatives will gather to recognize the National Day of Mourning for Workers Killed or Injured on the Job.
