Workers Memorial Day
On April 28, working people around the world observe Workers Memorial Day, known as National Day of Mourning or Jour de Deuil in Canada, to remember those who have suffered and died on the job and to renew the fight for safe jobs.
Since this commemoration takes place on a Sunday this year, the IATSE asks that all members across North America pause to reflect with a moment of silence on Monday, April 29th at 10am PDT/1:00pm EDT.
