On April 28, join us to honor the workers who have been killed or injured on the job and to fight until the promise of safe jobs is a reality.

What You Can Do on Workers’ Memorial Day:

Teamster members across the country can conduct a variety of activities to honor and remember those who have lost their lives in the workplace.  Teamsters are encouraged to participate in events that may be held by labor councils in each state.  You can also coordinate activities with the Committees on Occupational Safety and Health (COSH groups), a network of non-profit organizations around the United States that advocate for worker safety and health.  (http://www.coshnetwork.org/)

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, large scale public events may have to be postponed or hosted in nontraditional ways over digital media platforms or in smaller gatherings.
