Hell no! A stick-up-at-work poster for Workers’ Memorial Day, 28 April 2015. Photograph: Maria Sciandra • Graphic design: Mary Schrider

Workers' Memorial Day graphic 2014
This poster features 9-year-old Jetaime Medina, who lost her father Tony to the asbestos cancer mesothelioma. He was 42. Now with mum Maitea and brother Javier, 13, and sister Nadine, 11, the family is backing calls for tougher regulation and enforcement of workplace safety standards. It is not just about injuries – work-related health problems kill at least 100 times the number as ‘accidents’ at work.

HUCK/KONPACKI Making a Killing Texas Style. "The recent bombing in Boston that killed three people was quickly branded “terrorism.” If convicted, the 19-year-old suspect could face the death penalty under federal law. In the same week, an explosion at a West, Texas fertilizer plant killed 14 people, including 11 firefighters. Though the West Chemical and Fertilizer Company hadn’t had a safety inspection since 1985 and had lied to the Environmental Protection Agency about explosives on the property, it will likely and literally get away with murder." read more

UFCW poster marks April 28 — National Day of Mourning for Workers Killed or Injured on the Job

A stark and particularly gruesome morgue image calls attention to the National Day of Mourning for Workers Killed and Injured on the Job, recognised each April 28, on a new workplace poster issued by the UFCW Canada National Office.

With the tag line “Your Name Here,” the poster reminds members that on-the-job safety issues are a major concern, and that many workers are injure and killed while trying to make a living. “Workplace safety is an extremely serious issue,” says UFCW Canada National President Wayne Hanley. “We hope that this will help catch and focus members’ attention on our ongoing fight for workplace safety while remembering those lives that have been lost.”

Copies of the poster have been mailed to all UFCW Canada local unions and are available on request. The image can also be downloaded

Job killer Every year, tens of thousands of families in the UK lose someone to a work-related injury or disease. But the UK government is diluting safety laws and hobbling the safety enforcer. That’s one more reason why on 28 April this year, campaigners will expose David Cameron’s deadly plans.
