Workers Memorial Day 2012

Every year, on or around April 28, AFSCME and the unions of the AFL-CIO observe Workers Memorial Day to remember those who have suffered and died on the job and to renew the fight for safe workplaces.

Council 4 will mark Workers Memorial Day on Friday, April 27, 2012 at 10 a.m. in front of the Workers Memorial Monument located outside our union hall in New Britain.

This year we will take time out to remember AFSCME Local 1026 member Nicholas Yetishefsky, an employee of the Metropolitan District Commission, who died on the job Oct. 17, 2011.
