Every year, Victorian Trades Hall Council hosts a memorial service to remember those Victorians who lost their lives at work.

Join us on the 28th of April for International Workers Memorial Day 2021 to commemorate the workers we've lost in the past year.

The ceremony will include a minute's silence at 11am and an opportunity to lay wreaths.

This event is a COVID safe event and numbers are capped, so RSVPs (and masks) are essential. The memorial service will be held in person at Melbourne Trades Hall. However, this is subject to change pending COVID conditions.

You can RSVP for this event here: www.ohsrep.org.au/iwmd2021

The ASU stand in solidarity with the striking members of the United Workers Union at McCormick foods. These workers have now been on strike for five weeks fighting for their first pay rise in five years. In response McCormick foods have put out an enterprise agreement that would have cut their pay by $500. This is what corporate greed looks like.

Last week the workers rejected this shameful offer by over 90%.

McCormick foods have made millions over the past year on the backs of the hard work of their skilled workforce and it’s time they made a fair offer.

One day longer, one day stronger.
