President’s Message – National Day of Mourning

Graphic that reads: Day of Mourning April 28, 2023

Today we mark the National Day of Mourning, when we remember and honour workers who have been killed, injured or suffered illness due to workplace-related hazards and occupational exposures. Please, take a moment today to reflect on the importance of unions and their historic role in protecting workers and labour rights.

ACTRA’s 80-year history has been built on the partnerships we’ve made in the labour movement and our shared goals to protect the rights of all workers. Our solidarity as a union has enabled us to create and enforce some of the best health and safety provisions for performers in the world.

We mourn those who have passed but remain ready to fight for those who remain.

In solidarity,
Eleanor Noble
ACTRA National President
