GMB Northants Community Branch will be hosting an event on Saturday the 29th April 2023 at the Corby Cube to mark International Workers Memorial Day.
GMB Northants Community Branch and Corby Town Council held an event to mark Workers Memorial Day 2022 in Corby on Saturday 30th April 2022.
The event was a great success and commemorated International Workers Memorial Day, below are some photos from the event.
Every year more people are killed at work than in wars. Most don't die of mystery ailments, or in tragic "accidents". They die because an employer decided their safety just wasn't that important a priority. International Workers’ Memorial Day (IWMD) 28 April commemorates those workers.
On Saturday the 30th April 2022 at 11am, we will hold a Workers Memorial Day Event in Corby at the STEELWORKER STATUE James Ashworth VC Square, Outside The Cube CORBY, Northants, more information below:

Minute’ s Silence and Workplace Events
Many workplaces around the country, including the Midlands, are organising a commemoration, with the permission of employers where possible, ranging from a simple minute’s silence to a short, socially-distanced, meeting appropriate to that workplace.
Please join in, wherever you are, whatever you can do.
Tuesday, the 28th of April, is International Workers Memorial Day. We usually hold an event in Corby to commemorate but because of Government guidelines this will not happen this year.
Calls have been made by unions to hold a minutes silence to honour those key workers who are putting their lives at risk fighting the Covid-19 pandemic.
This event is Cancelled due to coronavirus
Every year the branch commemorates Workers Memorial Day (info on 2019 event is here). This year we will be holding it on Saturday April 25th at 11.00am next to the steelworker statue in Corby town centre or in the Corby Cube if the weather is bad.
We have speakers and invite other unions to attend.
We also present a cheque to the Mesothelioma Research Fund which does a lot of good work helping those who have contracted this killer disease, usually caused by breathing asbestos at work, and funding research into a cure. We raised over £2000 for the fund last year and over the past few years we raised over £15000.
We will add more information about this years event soon
