They Paused to Remember Last Night.

 

The United Steelworkers Local 7106 held a ceremony at their monument last night to mark the National Day of Mourning.  Their Health and Safety Rep Ken Bateman told those attending that the day is recognized in over one hundred countries around the world bringing attention to a single fact no matter where in the world and no matter how advanced our technology people are still dying because of their jobs.  He says each year a thousand workers are killed across Canada and millions more globally because of their work, adding in fact this number is much higher because many deaths go unreported of workers who died of occupational diseases that weren’t thought to be work related.

            

  Wreaths were laid by various union and community representatives with messages emphasizing the need to make working conditions safe for everybody remembering those workers who died or were injured on the job and fighting to put an end to it.
