On 28 April, International Workers’ Memorial Day, we remember those who have died as a result of accidents, injuries or illnesses caused by work – and promise to fight for the living.
The events of the past 12 months make this day more poignant than ever. UNISON members have been at the forefront of the fight against COVID-19. They have worried for their families, been infected themselves and tragically, some have paid the ultimate price for their dedication.
UNISON takes health and safety seriously and we have been recruiting more safety reps during the pandemic because we know they really make a difference. Workplaces with active trade union safety reps are twice as safe as those with none.
On 28 April, please take time to remember those who have lost their lives whilst at work.
