A Workers Memorial Day is planned for later this month.

On April 28, a Workers Memorial Day will be held to mark those killed, injured, disabled and made unwell by work.

Waltham Forest Trade Union members will mark the damage done but remembering those who lived and worked locally and were killed whilst going about their job.

Known workplace fatalities such as Marian Iancu from Leyton who died in a warehouse in Barking in 2015, Raymond Holmes who died working at Thames Water, Coppermill Lane in Walthamstow in 2010 and Marian Nemit who died working in a shop refurbishment at The Bakers Arms in Leyton in 2015.

The event will take place at Abbotts Park near Leyton Midland Overground Station from 1.15pm to 1.45pm.

Speakers during the event will include John Cryer Leyton and Wanstead MP, Phil Lewis from Hazards, Annabelle Stanford from Unison; Steve White from National Education Union and Tommy Anderson, President Waltham Forest Trade Council.
