Canada's National Day of Mourning for Injured and Killed Workers - Ceremony

Event Date: 
Wednesday, April 28, 2021 - 7:00pm EDT
Event Location: 
zoom
Every year thousands of people gather around the world on April 28th to observe the National Day of Mourning.

The purpose of Day of Mourning is twofold – to remember and honour those lives lost or injured because of their work and to renew the commitment to prevent further deaths, injuries and diseases by improving health and safety in the workplace.  Covid 19 has ravaged workplaces and has resulted in the death and illness of thousands of workers and this years ceremony is particularly pertinent for all those affected by the pandemic.

The Thunder Bay & District Labour Council, the Thunder Bay & District Injured Workers Support Group and the Workers Health and Safety Centre are once again holding their National Day of Mourning Ceremony via Zoom.

The Day of Mourning Ceremony will be held next Wednesday April 28th at 7:00 pm and we invite you to join us in this ceremony by clicking on the link below.  I have attached a poster for the event and encourage you to pass on this invitation to your contacts.
 
If you can’t join in at 7 PM, take some time out to reflect and renew our work together for safer workplaces.  You may also want to light a candle and place it in a window so others can see it as well.

IWH Webinar - Fragmentation in the future of work: Exploring the impact of the changing nature of work on vulnerable workers

Event Date: 
Tuesday, February 23, 2021 - 11:00am to 12:00pm EST
Event Location: 
online

Presented by Arif Jetha, Institute for Work & Health, EPID@Work Adjunct Scientist

Tuesday, February 23, 2021
11:00 A.M. - 12:00 P.M.
Register for the webinar here

The future of work is characterized by diverse social, technological, economic, environmental and political changes, including artificial intelligence and the automation of jobs, an aging workforce, climate change. These are expected to disrupt every industry, transform working conditions and affect the types and availability of jobs. Despite a growing discourse on the changing nature of work, there is a limited understanding of how the future of work will impact vulnerable labour market groups. In this presentation, Dr. Arif Jetha outlines nine major trends that may shape the future of work and have a specific impact on vulnerable workers.

Dr. Arif Jetha is a Scientist at the Institute for Work & Health. His program of research aims at examining how the future of work will impact vulnerable groups of workers, including young workers and people living with disabilities.

Thunder Bay Injured Workers Session: “ From life-long pensions to “deeming”: a history of worker resistance”.

Event Date: 
Tuesday, February 9, 2021 - 10:00am to 12:00pm EST
Event Location: 
online
This Tuesday, Orlando will lead a topic coinciding with the 40th anniversary of the Paul Weiler report, with Steve and John M. as history “discussants”:  the working title is:
 
“ From life-long pensions to “deeming”: a  history of worker  resistance”.
 
The idea is to go through the history of worker resistance over the years, with input and general discussion leading to the present. Maybe WCAR folks can add some reflections how this helps or not the current struggle.
 
 

Thunder Bay Injured Workers is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
