NATIONAL DAY OF MOURNING, WEDNESDAY, APRIL 28, 2021
For a second year, we must observe our Day of Mourning virtually. We are still living in unprecedented times, and the need to ensure our workplaces are safe and our friends and colleagues are protected has never been greater. The NSGEU will continue to fight to ensure all workers are protected from harm while on the job
On Wednesday, April 28th Canada will observe a Day of Mourning to remember our fellow workers who were killed or injured on the job, and to re-commit to making our workplaces safer for everyone.
Due to COVID, there will be no in-person ceremonies, however, the Canadian Labour Congress has created a virtual event that focuses on the impacts of the pandemic on workers under the following theme: The Human Cost of COVID-19. If you would like to participate in this event, which starts at 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday, please register at here.
The Nova Scotia Federation of Labour is also holding a webinar exploring the legacy of Westray and what occupational, health and safety measures mean for workers in the midst of Covid-19, click here to register.
The NSGEU is urging all members to observe a moment of silence to remember the workers we have lost.
