USW ceremony honors workers killed on the job

The United Steelworkers (USW) and Tony Mazzocchi Center (USWTMC) today joined with workers throughout North America in marking Workers' Memorial Day. Each April 28, the union commemorates the workers who lost their lives on the job and rededicates itself to the goal of eliminating all workplace hazards.

In a ceremony in the lobby of the USW International Headquarters, fellow union members read aloud the names of the 39 USW workers who lost their lives in the past year. As each worker’s name was read, members rang a bell and extinguished a candle.

Guest speakers included International Vice President at Large Carol Landry and International Vice President of Administration Tom Conway.
