Hyslop Marks West Lothian International Workers Memorial Day

April 28th 2017

Local Constituency MSP Fiona Hyslop attended West Lothian’s International Workers Memorial Day in Bathgate on Friday (28th April).

Commenting on the day, Fiona said;

“I am always pleased to attend such an important event, to mark International Workers’ Memorial Day – a tribute in remembering workers who have died, been injured or made seriously ill through work.

“West Lothian was an early pioneer of commemorating this day and would like to thank West Lothian Trades Council for organising the service.

“This day is about marking international solidarity, the need for political and legal change but it is also about people – the people we have lost and those that are still living. The 28th of April memorial day helps us to remember these workers around the world and rededicate ourselves to fight for health and safety for the living.”
