On April 28, the unions of the AFL-CIO will observe Workers Memorial Day to remember those who have suffered and died on the job and to renew the fight for safe jobs. Join us as we commit to fighting until all workers have safe jobs and the freedom to join unions. Find an event near you.
The safety and health gains we have won are now threatened. The Trump administration has launched an all-out assault on regulations. The president has ordered that for every new protection, two existing safeguards must be removed from the books. At the same time anti-worker legislators in Congress have moved quickly to overturn new rules issued by the Obama administration. Agency budgets and enforcement programs are on the chopping block. The safety and health of workers and the public are in danger.
We must fight back. We cannot and will not let them turn back the clock and destroy the progress we have made to make jobs safer and save lives.
