On Friday, April 23, 10 am – 12 noon, we will honor those men and women who have died from work-related traumatic injury or illness at our 32nd Annual Worker’s Memorial Day virtual program. Our program, the oldest and largest in the country, is co-sponsored by PhilaPOSH and the Philadelphia Council, AFL-CIO.
After 46 years, we are still fighting for some of the same safety and health issues we fought for when PhilaPOSH was founded. Going to work continues to be far too dangerous for many workers. Sadly, despite a pandemic that brought unprecedented threats to workers, we’ve witnessed the rollback and delayed implementation of many OSHA regulations over the past year. Please join us in honoring those we’ve lost and lifting up important efforts to ensure every worker can come home safe and healthy at the end of their day.
This year’s program will feature speakers addressing efforts to bring OSHA protections for Pennsylvania public sector workers, protect workers’ rights, and win adequate funding and safer conditions for our schools.
The event will be held virtually on Zoom. Attendance information will be sent upon ticket purchase.
