DAY OF MOURNING - APRIL 28
Every year, New Brunswickers are injured at their workplace, some of them fatally.
In 1984, the Canadian Labour Congress established April 28 as a day for workers and employers to remember those workers who have died and been injured, and to reinforce their commitment to workplace health and safety. April 28, known as the Day of Mourning, is observed across Canada and recognized in more than 100 countries worldwide.
On this day, we urge you to honour the memory of all workers who lost their lives due to workplace injuries or occupational disease, and to resolve to improve workplace health and safety. The New Brunswick chapter of the CSSE encourages everyone to mark this event by observing a moment of silence, lowering your flag to half-mast, or attending a remembrance ceremony.
