Worker Memorial Day Event

Last year 54 Kansas workers lost their lives while on the job. An additional 31,700 sustained injuries or illness at or because of their workplace, according to a new report by the AFL-CIO.

On Thursday, April 28th,  at 6:00 P.M., working families, faith leaders and local officials will gather at the Machinist Hall, 3830 S. Meridian in Wichita, for a dinner to commemorate those who have perished or suffered injuries or illness on the job, and call on Congress to create safe jobs for all working people.

We will have a free catered dinner from Stroud’s Fried Chicken as we remember those Kansas Workers who lost their lives on the job and renew our commitment to fight for good, SAFE, jobs.

Featured speakers will include representatives from Wichita area Labor Unions, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and candidates for elected office.
