Remembering all workers who have lost their lives to Covid-19

International Workers Memorial Day poster

Tuesday 28 April is International Workers' Memorial Day, when people across the world remember those who have died because of their work. The day is supported by trade unions across the world.

This year in the UK, the Royal College of Nurses, the Royal College of Midwives and Unison have led the campaign to ask people to take part in a minute’s silence at 11am on Tuesday 28 April to remember all health, care and key workers who have lost their lives to Covid-19.

The University encourages staff to remember the dedication and sacrifice that these workers have made by taking part in the minute’s silence.

Colleagues may also wish to show their support by sharing this post on Twitter.
