Workers’ Memorial Day – 28th April 2015

ceremony
Housing Associations branch members and officers and Lynn Brown MP lay a wreath at the monument to workers who died in a tragic accident.

On Workers’ Memorial Day (28th April) UNISON Housing Associations branch organised a wreath-laying ceremony at the Three Mills Green memorial, Stratford E15.

The memorial was erected in memory of four workers who perished in an accident when working down a well – after one worker fainted from breathing gas, his three comrades died trying to rescue him.

Workers’ Memorial Day is an international trade union day of commemoration of those who die at work: mourn the dead, but fight for the living!
