Corby International Workers Memorial Day Commemoration event happened on Saturday the 28th April 2018. We had hoped to hold the event outside beside the Steelworker statue at The Cube, Corby; however the weather got the better of us and the event took place in the Council Chambers inside The Cube.
Workers Memorial Day is an annual event that commemorates the tragic deaths of workers in the workplace, all over the world workers and their representatives conduct events, demonstrations, vigils and a whole host of other activities to mark the day. The day is also intended to serve as a rallying cry to:
“remember the dead, but fight for the living”
