The Machinists Union commemorated Workers’ Memorial Day with a private ceremony at the William W. Winpisinger Education & Technology Center in Hollywood, Maryland, recognizing members who lost their lives in the workplace. The past year has been especially difficult due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Worker safety is one of the most important aspects of being a union member and on Wednesday, April 28, we remember those who died too soon. The IAM will honor 40 fallen members in its annual Workers’ Memorial Day Ceremony, held at the William W. Winpisinger Education and Technology Center in Hollywood, Md.
The IAM took pause last week to remember and honor the thousands of workers killed, injured or sickened on the job each year at a Workers’ Memorial Program at the William W. Winpisinger Education and Technology Center.
