On Workers’ Memorial Day, observed on April 28, we remember those who died or became severely injured while doing their jobs, including our CSEA brothers and sisters.
In addition to remembering those who have passed while doing their jobs, we also use Workers’ Memorial Day to renew our ongoing commitment to safe and healthy workplaces. These workplace deaths are preventable, and we will continue to fight until everyone can do their jobs safely.
As this edition was going to press, CSEA members were planning to observe Workers’ Memorial Day through events across the state that were being held on or around April 28.
CSEA Executive Vice President Mary E. Sullivan and Central Region President Kenny Greenleaf were among those who participated in a recent Workers’ Memorial Day ceremony in Ilion organized by the Central New York Labor Council.
We will feature coverage from other events in the June Work Force.
