The Labor Exchange: Peg Seminario and Workers Memorial Day

Subject: Workers Memorial Day 2017.

Dennis Creese speaks with guest Peg Seminario, Safety And Health Director, AFL-CIO, Washington, D.C.

The unions of the AFL-CIO observe Workers Memorial Day to remember those who have suffered and died on the job and to renew the fight for safe jobs. This year we will come together to defend hard-won victories by working people from attacks by right-wing Republicans and business groups. We will commit to fighting until all workers have safe jobs and the freedom to form unions to seek a better future. –
