TUC: Get planning for Workers' Memorial Day

TUC is urging union and campaign groups nationwide to get active for Workers' Memorial Day, 28 April 2004. A new TUC webpage includes a regularly updated listing on planned activities. It also gives pointers on things you might do. Here's some ideas: Get your employer to allow some form of recognition of the day, such as one minute's silence to remember anyone who has died at your workplace; ask your local council, or any other public body to fly official flags at half-mast on the day; write a letter to the local press; plant a tree; unveil a memorial; or organise a local meeting on health and safety and the need for more corporate accountability. Whatever you do, make sure you tell TUC and your union what you are up to.
