Apr 28, 2011 - Mourn for the Dead- Fight For the Living
Updated On: Apr 30, 2015

Thursday April 28, 2011

Today is Workers Memorial Day.  It is a day when the Labor movement takes time to remember those workers who died on the job.  Most years this day comes and goes with little more than a thought that we all must work safely on every job so we can come home to our families at the end of our work day.

This year we ask every member of IBEW Local Union 21 to take time to remember one of our own. On October 14, 2010, our Brother Keith Darnell died in a workplace tragedy. 

Keith was an accomplished lineman and fiber splicer in his 17 years of service at AT&T. His co-workers thought of him as the go-to guy.  His family said Keith always beamed with life and found the bright side of any situation.

As his brothers and sisters, let us find the bright side of his passing.  Today let us remember him and recommit ourselves to working safely everyday on every job.  No matter what job we may perform, we must always remember, “No job is so important and no service is so urgent that we cannot take time to perform our work safely.”

For more information on Workers Memorial Day visit the AFL-CIO’s webpage now by clicking here.  More stories can also be found on the AFL-CIO’s blog here.
