33rd Annual Workers Memorial Day

On Friday, April 22nd we will honor those men and women who died from work-related traumatic injury or illness at our 33rd Workers Memorial Day breakfast program and memorial service. We are planning an in-person event this year and hope you can join us. Our program, the oldest and largest in the U.S., is co-sponsored by PhilaPOSH and the Philadelphia Council, AFL-CIO.

This year we will again be joined by family members from the area who have lost a loved one to a work-related traumatic injury or disease. It is our privilege to bring these family members together with the many unionists, community activists, and health and safety advocates who recognize the magnitude of their loss and are committed to fighting for healthy and safe worksites.

Masks will be required for this event.


  • 8:30 am: Registration
  • 9:00 am: Breakfast Served
  • 9:15 am Program Begins
  • 10:45 am Procession to the Great Plaza at Penn’s Landing
  • Procession will be followed by a prayer offering, Memorial remarks from family members, reading of the names of those who died from work-related injuries and illnesses in the Tri-State area in 2021.

We look forward to your participation in this year’s Worker’s Memorial Day.
