Don't Let Employers Get Away With Murder 9.30am, Thurs 2nd August Demonstration - Glasgow Sheriff Court, Carlton Place (adjacent to Mosque)
HARD WORK NEVER KILLED ANYONE…. Well us here at the Graham Meldrum Memorial Campaigh don’t agree with that, work kills and maims. Families against Corporate killers estimate that 1,700 people are killed annually in workplace incidents, that’s not including the thousands who die of occupational diseases. We refuse to use the word accident because over 70% of deaths and injuries are due to management health and safety issues. > Like F.a.c.k. we want government action to implement laws of corporate manslaughter for employers who negleigently kill and maim workers. If they take the profits they musty take the responsibility. We are disgusted at the slashing of the health and safety executive budget meaning less inspections and what there is is ineffective.We call for more power for all workers and safety reps. More importantly we ask you to look after yourselves and your work colleagues, don’t do anything that is unsafe and don't expect anyone else to do it. We can't bring Graham back or any of the countless others but together we can fight to stop other needless deaths.
