International Workers' Memorial Day 2020

Every year on 28 April, the trade union movement around the world remembers those who have lost their lives at work or from work-related injury and diseases. As you would expect, the focus this year is on coronavirus.

As part of the commemorations there will be a national one minute silence at 11am on Tuesday 28 April to remember those who have lost their lives from the disease, and to thank all those who continue to do vital work at great risk. The initiative is supported by the UK government
