Mourn for the Dead. Fight for the Living! Decades of struggle by working people and their unions have improved working conditions and made jobs safer. More than four decades ago Congress passed the Occupational Safety and Health Act, promising every worker the right to a safe job.  After years of struggle, unions continued to win new rules, such as a stronger coal dust standard for miners and anti-retaliation protections for workers who report job injuries.

But all these hard-won gains are now threatened by the Trump Administration’s assault on safety and health regulations.

On April 28 we will show our force and commitment to defending every workers’ right to safe jobs in healthy work environments. Stand up on the steps of the Statehouse in Boston and speak out for workplace protection.
