April 28th is recognized by the labour movement across Canada as the day when we mourn victims of workplace accidents or disease and remember their sacrifice.
This is also a time for the renewal of our pledge to rededicate ourselves to the goal of making our workplaces safer. We must continue to urge governments to improve health and safety standards and workers' compensation benefits in the workplace.
Labour Councils from around the province have organized events in honour of the day.
