Day of Mourning 2020

April 28, 2020

April 28th is our day of mourning, due to the COVID -19 pandemic we are unable to gather in person today to mourn the unnecesary deaths of 165 Albertans who have lost their lives in a workplace covered by the Worker’s Compensation Board. Unfortunately, we will never know the true toll on working families in Alberta but today we do our best to honour them all.

Please take the time to hear their names and spend a moment in reflection on how there could be a better world where there are no names to read at all.

Join Greg Mady (President, Edmonton & District Labour Council), Gina Puntil (Alberta Workers Health Centre), & Gil McGowan (President, Alberta Federation of Labour) as they raise awareness around Day of Mourning, workers rights, and health & safety.
