April 28 is the International Day of Mourning for workers killed or injured on the job. CUPE will honour these workers who have lost their lives or been injured at work, in special ceremonies across the country.
The Day of Mourning is about more than remembering the dead though. It’s also about fighting for the living and making our workplaces safer and healthier. With that in mind, CUPE is launching a new English radio ad this week to help raise awareness about the day and about the tools CUPE offers to make your workplace safer.
Listen to the ad that will be broadcast on English radio stations across Canada from April 22 to April 26:
In Quebec, the Quebec Federation of Labour construction component (FTQ Construction) will also broadcast a French radio ad leading to the International Day of Mourning.
