This year on Saturday, April 28th, we will once again honor those men and women who were killed or injured on their work sites. Worker’s Memorial Day is an important day to reflect on the safety of our jobs both now and in the future. Many on site injuries are evidenced as willful neglect by various employers who in turn put profits before lives and injuries. Congress needs to look towards providing stronger legislation that will hold those negligent individuals responsible for the willful neglect of job site safety. Worker safety is mutually everyone’s responsibility both workers and employers alike. We need to work together to save lives and avoid injuries, in doing so everyone gains.

Local 195 sadly reports that Msgr. John J. Gilchrist, Spirtiual Director of Local 68 IUOE has passed away. Msgr. Gilchrest was an ordained priest of the Newark Archdiocese for almost 61 years. He was the Spiritual Director of Local 68, the NJ State AFL-CIO and the NJ Building & Construction Trades Council. The Labor Movement will surely miss him.
