International Workers’ Day – May 1, 2020

International Workers Day, also known as May Day, is observed on May 1st to celebrate the working class and labourers around the world. Today we recognize the worldwide struggles and achievements of the labour movement.

As your Component Officers, we will ensure that workers’ rights remain at the forefront of our discussions with the Company, and we will continue to highlight the inadequacies of safe working conditions in our industry.

Although this year we will not be able to take to the streets, as we have in the past, to commemorate the historic struggles, and to voice our demands for decent work and a life of dignity and respect, we nonetheless still recognize International Workers’ Day, in solidarity with millions of workers around the world.

In solidarity,
