No more deaths at work: Crossrail memorial vigil, Southwark Crown Court, 10 May

There’s an ongoing court case over the death of construction worker Rene Tka’cik, and the injuries caused to two others, by three companies working on the Crossrail project: BAM Nuttall Limited, Ferrovial Agroman (UK) Ltd, and Keir Infrastructure and Overseas Ltd. The first court date was last week, and was accompanied by a vigil remembering Rene and demanding a end to deaths caused by employer negligence; the next date will be at Southwark Crown Court on the 10th of May, with construction workers, bereaved families and others having a presence outside from 10am onwards.

Between now and May 10th, there’s another important event commemorating and opposing deaths at work: International Workers Memorial Day on April 28th. To find out if there’s anything happening in your area, try checking this list or this one (the two lists don’t quite match up, and neither of them seem to include the Bristol Hazards Group event, which looks really worthwhile). For IWMD resources, contact the Hazards campaign at 0161 636 7557 or info@hazardscampaign.org.uk.

About nothingiseverlost

"The impulse to fight against work and management is immediately collective. As we fight against the conditions of our own lives, we see that other people are doing the same. To get anywhere we have to fight side by side. We begin to break down the divisions between us and prejudices, hierarchies, and nationalisms begin to be undermined. As we build trust and solidarity, we grow more daring and combative. More becomes possible. We get more organized, more confident, more disruptive and more powerful."
