IUEC Safety Stand Down 2020

Workers Memorial Day – National Day of Mourning

April 28, 2020

As part of the International Union of Elevator Constructors efforts to make the Conveyance Industry safer for all, we have established April 28th as the IUEC Safety Stand Down Day. This also coincides with Workers Memorial Day in the United States and The National Day of Mourning in Canada.

Please take a moment to think about the more than 323 Brothers and Sisters we have lost on the job. They were like each of us who goes to work to make a living and provide for their families. Except that when they left for work one day, they never came back home to the people who loved them.

Also take time to think about those Brothers and Sisters who have been injured on the job, some never able to return to our trade.
