The Massachusetts AFL-CIO is the umbrella organization for more than 750 local unions, joint boards and district councils in the state, representing working women and men across the Commonwealth. MassCOSH is a non-profit organization whose members include workers, unions and health and legal professionals. Their mission is to ensure that all workers earn a fair wage, are treated with respect and dignity and return home to their families alive and well.

The saddest aspect of these losses is that work-related injuries and illnesses are preventable. Please join us tomorrow at the State House to honor these workers and fight for workplace safety for all:
