Workers’ Memorial Day, 28th April

25 03 2015

Please join North Staffs Trades Council for Workers’ Memorial Day on Tuesday 28th April 2015. As always, the purpose behind the international day is to mourn for the dead and fight for the living. You can view our 2013 and 2014 commemorations to read previous speeches and see photos from the day. Visit the TUC webpages to find out more about workplace fatalities.

There will be leafleting outside Stoke-on-Trent train station between 4- 6pm.

At 6.30pm we will march, with banners, from Stoke station to the Timothy Trow Memorial on London Road, Stoke.

Refreshments will be available afterwards at Stoke Methodist Church.

At 7pm there will be a minute of silence to remember all those killed through work. This will be followed by speeches from:

  • Helen Harrison (North Staffs TUC President)
  • Dave Lyddon (University & College Union)
  • Ruth Smeeth (Labour PPC Stoke North)
  • Ravi Subramanian (Unison Regional Secretary)

Please download a poster or circulate a link to this blog post to friends and colleagues.
