Workers killed, hurt on the job recognized at memorial event

Detroit— Workers, local officials and religious leaders from Detroit and Windsor gathered Saturday afternoon in remembrance of workers who have been killed or injured on the job.

“We must never forget those that lost their lives,” said Chris Michalakis, president of the Metro Detroit AFL-CIO during the International Workers Memorial Day event at the UAW-Ford National Programs Center. “Workplace safety has come a long way since passing OSHA. We still have a long way to go.”

Leaders are seeking stronger regulations and safer workplaces. In 2010, 141 Michigan workers died while working and 106,800 were injured on the job, according to AFL-CIO officials.

State Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Detroit, said her colleagues are trying to get rid of the Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Act.

“They want that oversight gone,” she said. “It’s very odd to be in the Legislature. It’s like the twilight zone.”
