News Conference – Workplace Safety and National Day of Mourning

On April 24, 2017, in Ottawa, Hassan Yussuff (the president of the Canadian Labour Congress) and Ken Neumann (the Canadian national director of the United Steelworkers) discuss the National Day of Mourning alongside relatives of workers killed on the job. They also comment on the enforcement of the “Westray Law” on corporate liability. The law takes its name from the Nova Scotia mine that was the site of a deadly mining disaster in 1992.
