The site of a deadly construction accident in Raleigh will be the starting point for a march to remember workers who died or suffered a serious injury or illness on the job.
The march will be held Tuesday in Raleigh to mark International Workers’ Memorial Day. Participants include the AFL-CIO, the North Carolina Council of Churches, the Farm Labor Organizing Committee, the North Carolina Justice Center and Student Action with Farmworkers.
The participants will hold a news conference near the site where a crane collapsed last month, killing three workers and injuring one. They'll record the names of the 109 North Carolinians who died on the job in 2013.
They'll then march to the Labor Department, where they'll deliver a letter to Commissioner Cherie Berry.
