Here are some suggestions about what to do on this day.

  • Mayworks 2017 kicks off today in Toronto with a film called A Day’s Work, about a temp worker was killed on his first day on the job.  You can watch the film and read an interview with the film producer here.  Join the local movement to demand better protections for temporary workers. 
  • Sign this Lead Now petition to demand better PTSD protections for public safety workers in British Columbia.  Let us know if there are others.
  • Come out to a Day of Mourning event today.  Here is the full list of events compiled by the Canadian Labour Congress.

Every day, mourn and remember the dead and fight like hell for the living.  Let’s make sure that all people working in Canada are working safely and are protected.
