Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the IAM will remember members who have died on the job during a virtual ceremony on Tuesday, April 28, 2020. Unions in the United States and Canada observe Workers’ Memorial Day to commemorate the thousands of workers killed, injured or sickened on the job each year.
The names of IAM members who have died on the job will be memorialized with their name, lodge and date of death with a brick at the IAM’s Workers’ Memorial at the William W. Winpisinger Education and Technology Center in Hollywood, MD.
The IAM Workers Memorial was completed in 2001. It was dedicated to the remembrance of those who lost their lives while on the job. The bricks surrounding the Memorial bear the names of fallen members along with bricks donated from lodges and proud members of the IAMAW.
On April 28 each year a ceremony is conducted to remember those who lost their lives and rededicate ourselves to the prevention of on the job injury and death to workers.
