Workers Memorial Day 2020: Join us for a virtual ceremony

The COVID-19 pandemic prevents us from gathering in person, but it won’t stop us from memorializing our Steelworkers sisters and brothers who were injured or killed on the job in the last year.

Join us TOMORROW, April 28, at noon EST as we stream our 2020 Workers Memorial Day ceremony on our union Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and website. Here are the links:




We’ll take a few moments to reflect on those we’ve lost then do what we do: pivot into action to continue pushing for laws to make our workplaces safer. Stay tuned for a series of educational webinars on our Facebook page kicking off this this week from our Health, Safety and Environment Department

Also look for information from Rapid Response about worker safety legislation we’re pushing. And watch for our Education Department’s video watch party series starting with the film, “Silkwood,” a drama based on health and safety concerns at a nuclear facility. 

Finally, a reminder to visit our in the U.S. and in Canada pages often as we’re adding resources there daily to help us all get through this.
