Workers Memorial Day
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
This Workers Memorial Day, we honor the dead and injured and recommit ourselves to protecting the men and women who go to work each day expecting to arrive home the same way they left.
Each year in America, thousands of workers die and millions more are injured or take ill because of their work. We should never accept even one injury or illness on the job and must always strive to make our workplaces even safer for everyone.
As we all know, workplace deaths are largely preventable with proper planning, training, and PPE. Safe jobs really do save lives and never was that as important as it is today.
This Workers Memorial Day and everyday, I thank you for your commitment to health and safety.
I hope you and your families are doing well and staying safe.
Sincerely and Fraternally,
Raymond M. Pocino
LIUNA Vice President and
Eastern Regional Manager
