Remember the dead. Fight for the living!
Keep up the pressure for proper PPE and testing
Next Tuesday, 28th April, is International Workers Memorial Day, when trade unionists all over the world remember workers killed while doing their jobs.
Never has this been more relevant and important, as the COVID-19 crisis continues to take lives, especially within the caring services and among key workers who are putting their lives on the line to care for others
Often they are working without proper personal protective equipment (PPE) and in the UK the government’s mismanagement of the crisis has severely restricted the availability of testing.
The lockdown means what we can do as a branch is limited. But we can all observe a minute’s silence at 11am on Tuesday wherever we are – working from home or in our workplace. After that we could use home-made posters and banners to demand more PPE and testing. Take a picture of yourself with your poster and send it to the branch so we can make an online display to play our part in the battle for proper protection for all workers. Send your pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will post them on our website and Facebook page.
Remember the dead. FIGHT FOR THE LIVING!
