June 2 | Join the Nova Scotia Federation of Labour, StFX Extension, and Coady Institute for a webinar focused on Workers’ Rights and Sick Days in Nova Scotia. This event is funded by the Topshee Memorial Fund.
This year the Nova Scotia Federation of Labour, StFX Extension, and Coady Institute are commemorating the National Day of Mourning by launching a new webinar series, Building Back Better for Nova Scotian Workers. The first webinar takes place online April 28 from 7 to 8 p.m. and focuses on Worker Health and Safety.
Join us as we explore Building Back Better for Nova Scotian Workers. The first topic of the series is Worker Health and Safety. On April 28, the National Day of Mourning, we will explore the Westray experience and legacy and what occupation, health, and safety measures mean for workers in the midst of Covid-19.
