April 28th National Day of Mourning

National Day of Mourning

April 28 is the annual National Day of Mourning to remember those who lost their lives or had their lives changed forever because of a workplace injury or occupational disease.

Our members continue to deal with the physical and psychological impacts of illnesses and increased workplace violence.

This year we will join labour allies to encourage workers to demand “Safe work now!”

This April 28th and every day, ETFO will continue to mourn the dead and fight for the living.

Our Board is recognizing this event on Friday April 26th at Avon Public School with a celebration starting at 10:45.

The Huron District Labour Council is holding a recognition event on Sunday April 28th, starting at 1:00 across from the Huron Historic Gaol in Goderich.
