ETUC will run a highly visible action on 28 April, focusing on the 100,000 people who die every year in the EU as a result of occupational cancers.

To mark the International Workers’ Memorial Day, the European Trade Union Confederation (ETUC) will run a highly visible action on 28 April, focusing on the 100,000 people who die every year in the EU as a result of occupational cancers, as well as the 150,000 people who have died waiting for the EU to approve the Directive on Carcinogens and Mutagens at Work, held up since October 2013 by an EU review of ‘red tape’.  The ETUC is planning to meet with Commissioners and MEPs at the European Parliament in Strasbourg, and will participate in events in Belgium and Latvia.
