New Event Proposal #2:

2014 SF Workers Memorial Day-Fighting For Health And Safety And Healthcare For Injured Workers
April 28, 2014 7:00 PM
ILWU Local 34
5 Berry St./Next To AT&T Ball Park
San Francisco, CA

Workers Memorial Day San Francisco
Remember The Dead, Fight For The Living

Join injured workers, health and safety advocates, healthcare advocates and others on Workers Memorial Day in San Francisco on April 28, 2014. In California workers face a more and more dangerous situation on the job with injuries and deaths from workplace toxins and hazards. New technologies such as biotech and nanotech are unregulated and workers union and unorganized who speak out about health and safety are illegally retaliated against in many workplaces.
At the same time, California has only 162 OSHA inspectors for 18 million workers and the state refuses to even hire more inspectors with money that has already been appropriated. Ca-OSHA whistleblowers are now speaking out about the need to defend Ca-OSHA to protect California workers on the job.
Workplace bullying on the job is also creating more health problems including depression which is now a larger part of workplace injuries yet has been threatened by California SB 863 which limits compensation for these injuries.
Injured workers also face a growing crisis after they have to go through one obstacle course after another to get their healthcare. Doctors who are not even licensed in California operate through an outsourced company called Maximus which has anonymous doctors giving determination about whether workers are able to get their healthcare needs met.
On this day we will commemorate those workers killed on the job and those workers and their families who are fighting for healthcare and justice on the job.
