Workers’ Memorial Day Activities – 2022

PDF Version

This year on April 28th, as we have done since 1926, please join your co-workers and all workers to honor the workers who have been killed or injured and 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 various activities to honor and remember those who have lost their lives in the workplace. Teamsters are encouraged to participate in events that labor councils in each state may hold. 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.

Please report any activities you participate in and send along with any pictures (preferably digital) to the Teamsters Safety and Health Department so that we may publicize the event in Division newsletters and by other means. Ways to participate during the COVID-19 pandemic include:

Note: Due to the continuing, though diminished, risks posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, please safeguard your health and that of your fellow brothers and sisters by observing reasonable caution, as recommended by health officials in your community. Digital media platforms can be effectively combined with in-person gatherings.
