Today, as we remember those who lost their lives on the job, let us commit ourselves to empowering workers today in their ability to achieve the safest conditions possible.

Nurses must be able to put their health & patient care ahead of profits. Firefighters & EMTs must have the training & safety equipment needed to do their jobs. Construction workers must be able to speak out about shoddy or dangerous conditions.

The Workers' Rights Amendment ensures workers can speak out about dangeroussituations that put all Illinoisans at risk, & collectively bargain to make their workplaces safer, and speak out about problems without fear of retaliation.
