WisCOSH is planning several events for Workers’ Memorial Week of Action and we will tell you about them as we get more details.
Workers’ Memorial Week of Action
For the past several years the National COSH and WisCOSH have been trying to bring more attention to the loss of workers’ lives due to unsafe work and/or unhealthy working conditions by highlighting the 4,000 to 6,000 workers that are known to die each year due to workplace incident or exposures.
WisCOSH has expanded our activities beyond Workers’ Memorial Day to a week of actions. In the past WisCOSH has held a number of activities such as spending a day in Washington D.C. where we took a contingent of injured workers to speak with their Congressional representatives. This year WisCOSH is hosting special screenings of the documentary film “A Day’s Work“ which WisCOSH presented at Workers’ Memorial Day in 2015. Since that screening WisCOSH has continued to receive requests to show it again. WisCOSH plans to show this touching and real life movie again this year. If you are interested in showing it to your union, central labor council, community organization meeting or other venue please contact us so we can set up a showing for you.
