Greater Minnesota Worker Center Luau Party

Come celebrate with GMWC at our Luau Party!
luauMartha De La Rosa, Executive Director of Wisconsin Jobs Now, will be our keynote speaker at our 2nd annual Gala fundraiser on September 10th. We will also have a special message from Minnesota 5th Congressional District Congressman Keith Ellison.

This year has been a year of exciting growth and change at GMWC. We have seen significant development in our Poultry and SuperAmerica campaigns as well as the start of our Democracy Project. Workers are becoming leaders and as leaders they are bringing change to our community.

The #KeepUsSafeAtWork campaign is just beginning here in St Cloud and we are excited to see workers across industries stand up to demand safe work environments, with the support of the entire community.

We are excited to welcome two new staff members and several new committee, board, and worker members.

We are still here and still strong.

Workers’ Memorial Day is observed every year on April 28. It is a day to honor those workers who have died on the job, to acknowledge the grievous suffering experienced by families and communities, and to recommit ourselves to the fight for safe and healthful workplaces for all workers. It is also the day OSHA was established in 1971. Under the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, employers are responsible for providing safe and healthful workplaces for their workers. OSHA’s role is to ensure these conditions for America’s working men and women by setting and enforcing standards, and providing training, education and assistance.
