International Workers’ Memorial Day

International Workers’ Memorial Day, celebrated around the world and annually in Stirling, is held to remember those who have lost their lives at work, or from work-related injuries or diseases. Building on last year’s theme of a safe and healthy work environment as a right for workers, this year’s focus is on the core union priority of organising health and safety.

To mark this annual event, we would like to invite you to attend a short wreath laying service at the memorial tree on the grounds of Old Viewforth, on Friday 28th April 2023 at 11:00.

The occasion provides an opportunity to remember those who have died, in Scotland and around the world, and the event serves as an important reminder that our collective efforts can and should ensure such tragedies are not repeated.
