International Workers Memorial Day in Springfield on April 28

On April 28, the unions of the AFL-CIO observe Workers Memorial Day to remember those who have suffered and died on the job, and to renew the fight for safe jobs. This year we will come together to call for action on hazards that cause unnecessary injury, illness and death. We will stand united against the ongoing attacks on workers’ rights and protections, and demand that elected officials put workers’ well-being above corporate interests. We will fight for the right of every worker to a safe job until that promise is fulfilled.

When: Sunday, April 28, 2019, from 2:00 to 4:00 PM

Where: Howlett Building--201 South Second Street St, Springfield, IL, 62701 (the ceremony will take place in the Hall of Flags, which is located on the first floor, north side of the building facing the Capitol)

Host: Springfield & Central Il Trades & Labor Council
