Mourn the dead. Fight for the living.

Our love and solidarity go out to the families, friends and co-workers of the 11 CUPE members we lost to workplace-related fatalities in the past year.

The National Day of Mourning for Workers Killed or Injured on the Job is never an easy day, but it’s especially difficult this year because of the coronavirus pandemic.

We have already lost several CUPE members to COVID-19. And we fear there may be more to come. That is why we fight for better legislation, for workers to know their rights and for vital personal protective equipment.
