On April 28, the labor movement will observe Workers Memorial Day to remember workers who have been killed or injured on the job. Black ribbons will be distributed at the National Association of Letter Carriers Pioneer Branch 2, April meeting. Other local labor unions will also distribute black ribbons at their April meetings so members can wear them in the workplace and community that week. Help make it clear that the labor movement will keep fighting for strong safety and health protections and will keep creating good safe jobs. Ask your union steward for a black ribbon to wear. Strong unions have helped to make our country safe and strong. Support your local union and also support the United States of America.
