include plans to use their committee funds to pay for milaege and daily expenses, before requesting

expense cost at the time of their request, then the local may cover the remaining portion of their request.

WISCONSIN WORKERS MEMORIALS
, the unions of the AFL-CIO observe Workers Memorial Day to remember those
have suffered and died on the job. As we remember those who have died in workplace
catastrophes, suffered diseases due to exposure to toxic substances or been injured because of
dangerous conditions, we rededicate ourselves to fight for safe workplaces.
For 10 years, workers and unions have been fighting for an ergonomics standard to prevent
repetitive strain injuries and back injuries. This year, we are closer than ever to winning these
protections. Last November, OSHA finally issued a proposed ergonomics rule. But some
employer groups and their Republican allies in Congress are waging a fierce campaign to block the
standard from becoming law. We must redouble our efforts to win this important fight.
For decades, unions have led the struggle for improved working conditions and dignity and respect
on the job. Unions have won laws and protections—such as the Occupational Safety and Health
Act and the federal Mine Safety and Health Act—that have made workplaces safer for all workers.
Union contracts have given workers a voice on the job. Across the country, hundreds of thousands
of workers are organizing into unions, and workers’ voices are becoming stronger and stronger.
On April 28, as we remember workers who have been killed and injured, we must renew our fight
for the living. We must organize and mobilize for safe jobs.
