Niall McCarroll., from DTUC, said: "We will be honouring the hundreds of thousands of working people killed or injured doing their jobs every year. "Events will be held throughout the world, with Derry Trades Union Council marking International Workers Memorial Day on Sunday 28th April at 6.00pm in Guildhall Square." Mr McCarroll concluded: "Local trade unionists will welcome everyone through word and song, and we send an invitation out to the people of Derry."
