NYSLOF at Workers' Memorial Day Mass
For photos go HERE.
At the St. Patrick's Cathedral Memorial Mass in NYC, hard hats on empty chairs are a powerful reminder of lives lost.
In an official proclamation, President Barack Obama declared April 28, 2012 to be Workers' Memorial Day. Since that time, Americans have participated in ceremonies and activities in memory of those killed or injured due to unsafe working conditions.
This Workers' Memorial Day also marked the 41st anniversary of OSHA and the dramatic improvements in workplace safety and health over OSHA's first 40 years. NYSLOF joined several locals throughout the city to show their support.
