Workers’ Memorial Day

Workers’ Memorial Day, held on 28 April every year, brings together workers and their representatives from all over the world to remember the dead and fight for the living. 

The theme for the day is: ‘Stop the Pandemic in the Workplace.’

Workers are in the coronavirus front line, never has the WMD slogan “Remember the dead, Fight for the living” been so crucial as it is today during the fight against Covid-19. The pandemic is having a major impact on all of us, not just on lives and physical well-being but on our mental health as well, causing people anxiety, worry and putting them under additional stress. This crisis underscores the need for our mental health services to be supported and for workers to know that there is help for them when they need it.

Hold a minute’s silence

While we may not be able to attend the memorial events which usually take place, we want to build a day of ‘virtual’ action on Tuesday 28 April. Join in the minute’s silence at 11:00, which is held every year to commemorate lost workers.
