On April 28, we observe Workers’ Memorial Day to remember those who have suffered and died on the job and to renew the fight for safe jobs. This year we come together to defend Workers protections from recent attacks and to commit to fighting until all workers have safe jobs and the freedom to seek a safe future.
The Occupational Safety and Health Act promises workers the right to a safe job. The UAW-GM Health and Safety Department fights every day to make that promise a reality— putting in place protections that have made jobs safer, saved lives and helped to prevent workplace injuries and illnesses.
But our work is not done. We remain committed not only to our mission of eliminating fatalities, but sharing a new focus of “NOT HURTING PEOPLE”. As a member of our UAW-GM family, we all have the right to a safe workplace and our Joint Health and Safety teams are constantly on the job promoting values that return people home safely. Every Person, Every Site, Every Day.
