    Each year on Workers Memorial Day (April 28), working people throughout the world remember those who were hurt or killed on the job and recommit to the struggle for a safe workplace. 

    The Post Office is a dangerous place to work. In Fiscal Year 2017 alone, 12 postal employees died on the job and 42,594 injury claims were approved. 

    This Workers Memorial Day, we call for an end to the unnecessary injuries and deaths of our brothers and sisters. We push for action by – and increased protections for – all workers. Report safety hazards in the workplace and let’s hold management accountable to fix them.
