Dear Colleague

 

 Workers Memorial Day

 

Workers Memorial Day takes place on Tuesday 28th April 2015. The theme for this year’s event is “removing exposure to hazardous substance in the workplace”. The theme is particularly relevant to RMT members who often work in environments or with materials that can be harmful to their health.

 

The campaign also focuses attention on the general theme of demanding better regulation, greater inspections and an end to the anti-health and safety rhetoric from the government and their allies in the press. Remember the event takes place shortly before the general election and members should be encouraged to contact candidates for their views on the need for a strong health and safety regime to prevent workers being killed, injured or made ill through work.

 

Details of national and local events to commemorate the day can be found at:

Please bring the contents of this circular to the attention of relevant members.

 

Yours sincerely

 

Mick Cash

General Secretary
