UNISON Inverclyde – International Workers’ Memorial Day

UNISON Inverclyde observed a minute’s silence today as it remembered all the health, care and other key workers who have lost their lives to COVID.

Each year, on April 28, we remember those who have died as a result of accidents, injuries or illnesses caused by work – and promise to fight for the living.

Branch Health & Safety Officer, George Steele laid a wreath at Clyde Square, Greenock before observing a minute’s silence.

George said, “Every year, the sacrifice of workers around the world is recognised, but this year has a special significance because of the pandemic. It is important we take a moment today to remember the workers who’ve lost their lives and put themselves in harm’s way to keep us safe and keep vital services running.“

“Today we remember all those who have died because of their work – and renew our pledge to fight for the living.”
