Every year, all around the world, we unite to mark International Workers’ Memorial Day.
We remember those who have lost their lives at work, or from work-related injury and diseases. We renew our efforts to organise collectively to prevent more deaths, injuries and disease as a result of work.
This year we could not have a starker reminder of the important role of saving and protecting workers’ lives, than the current Covid-19 crisis we are living through. Whilst we may not have been able to attend memorial events which usually take place on IWMD, at Designer Group, we held a minute’s silence in remembrance and solidarity, paying tribute to the sacrifice made by so many workers during the pandemic. We remembered those who have sadly those who have sadly lost their lives, and to thank all those who continue to do vital work at great risk.
We remember those we have lost. We organise in their memory.
