While keeping a close eye on COVID-19 rates, MassCOSH is resuming important events in-person. Check out the below for more details:

First, MassCOSH plans to resume its powerful observation of International Workers’ Memorial Day at the steps of the Massachusetts State House on Thursday, April 28 at noon. We invite you to join us, your fellow workers, advocate allies, and families of those who have lost a loved one to honor those we lost on the job due to preventable injury and illness and vow to end unsafe work.

Second, MassCOSH will be organizing an East Boston rally/march for May Day on May 1. Also known as International Workers’ Day, May Day is an opportunity to amplify our work to fight for good, safe and fair jobs for all and to expand the movement now that so many of us understand the deadly impact of unsafe workplaces. For more details, email and follow us on social media for updates.

Finally, after a two-year hiatus, MassCOSH is pleased to announce our 46th Annual Celebrating the Movement event will be taking place May 5th at Freeport Hall, IBEW 103’s union hall in Dorchester!

In addition to celebrating the many victories that have been won by working people, we are honored to award the following and celebrate their contributions to the movement:
