The loss of 2 workers and the 4 others injured on Friday in London.
There are no words to express our feelings when a worker loses his life on the job. There are no excuses or explanations or actions that will soothe the families’ grief at this time. These families are faced with the task of saying goodbye to their loved ones at a time where families ought to be celebrating in a season of joy and merriment.
All of us at IBEW Local 353 want to send our condolences and prayers to those families.
Every year we on April 28 we honour injured and fallen workers. We also remember the families who have been deeply affected by these tragedies.
Every worker has the right to work safely, return home to his family, safe and sound. We must work together as an industry to prevent these unfortunate losses.
