Mayday 2010

Plymouth TUC will run an extended programme of events over the 2010 Mayday period.

We will kick off with a remembrance event at 5.30pm on Wednesday 28th April - Workers Memorial Day, when we remember those workers from all over the world, who have been killed in 'accidents at work' or by occupational diseases or because of their Trades Union activities.

For us this Workers Memorial Day is all the more poignant - on 29th April 2009, the day after the last Workers Memorial Day, a Unite member who was working at the Arjo Wiggins paper mill at Ivybridge, was tragically killed after being trapped in a papermaking machine.

The point of Workers Memorial Day is to remember the dead and to fight for the living!
