Today, on Workers Memorial Day, we pay tribute to the workers who lost their lives while doing their job. It’s a somber day to remember that too many workers are still risking their lives due to inadequate safety measures and government’s failure to protect their rights.

As the nation is in tatters with minimum service levels caused by strike action, it’s high time we demand better for our workers. We need safer workplaces, better working conditions, and greater job security for all.

Let’s remember the sacrifice of those who lost their lives and renew our commitment to fighting for the rights and safety of workers everywhere.
