Day of Mourning
Apr 28 all-day

April 28 is a National Day of Mourning to recognize workers injured or killed on the job. The Canadian Labour Congress (CLC) first declared April 28th as a National Day of Mourning in 1984, now more than 100 countries around the world observe it as well.

Workers die on the job every day and every year hundreds of thousands more suffer work-related injury or illness. They are gone but we have not forgotten. The IAM along with other Unions, labour councils, labour federations, families and community partners annually gather on April 28th to mourn the loss of fellow workers and loved ones and vow to prevent more of these tragedies.

This date has particular significance for IAM members who mourn the loss of one of their own. This week marks the third anniversary of the death of 24 year old Ian Henrey Pervez, a member of IAM Local Lodge 2323 who was killed on the job at Pearson Airport on April 22, 2016. “Henrey’s tragic death only highlights the need for constant vigilance in the ongoing battle for health and safety in the workplace,” said IAM Canadian General Vice President Stan Pickthall. “We continue to insist on effective workplace prevention programs developed with full worker participation. We must also demand better training that supports the identification, assessment and control of workplace hazards.”

Fight for the living, Mourn for the dead.

100th Anniversary of Winnipeg General Strike
May 15 all-day

Beginning promptly at 11:00 a.m., Thursday, 15 May 1919, between 25,000 and 30,000 Winnipeg workers walked out on a general strike. Work stopped quickly at the big railway shops and yards across the city, while and all factory production ceased. Winnipeg had no mail, streetcars, taxis, newspapers, telegrams, telephones, gasoline, or milk delivery. Most restaurants, retail stores, and even barber shops closed. Police, fire fighters, and employees of the water works shocked and frightened many in Winnipeg by joining the strike. Canadians across the country wondered what was going on in Winnipeg. The Winnipeg General Strike would last six weeks until it was finally brought to an end by the tragic events of Bloody Saturday.

The strike was called off on June 25, 1919.

Two years after the strike, Canada mandated its first minimum wage.
