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. Over the last year Long Island's workers, as in many other years, 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 outside the New York State Office building located on Veterans Memorial Highway in Hauppauge at 6:00 PM in front of Workers Memorial Square. The program will include comments about those we honor -- family, friends and union brothers and sisters. It will conclude with the planting of flowers at the base of the memorial. All families are welcome.
We hope to see you there.
Note: All attendees will be required to wear a mask. This event will be conducted according to current CDC guidance and New York State regulations.
