On Workers’ Memorial Day, April 28th, workers across our Nation pause to remember those who have died as a result of a workplace injury or illness. Once again, Long Island’s workers failed to escape the tragedy of death as a result of performing their jobs. These workers and their grieving families must not be forgotten. Please join the Long Island Workers’ Memorial Day Committee in honoring these workers at a service dedicated to their memory.
The memorial service will be inside the lobby of the New York State Office building located on Veterans Memorial Highway in Hauppauge. Activities will begin at 12:00 pm or early afternoon. We will clarify the exact time in a subsequent communication. The memorial service will include comments about those we honor, from family, friends and union brothers and sisters. It will conclude with a candlelight service and the planting of flowers in Workers’ Memorial Square. Families are welcome, and chairs and light refreshments will be provided.
