The Dying to Work campaign was formally launched at the Midlands TUC Regional Council at Derby City Council on May 16. Some 70 delegates from trade unions from across the Midlands came together to raise the profile of the campaign and pledge to promote the Dying to Work campaign
Launching the campaign, Midlands TUC Regional Secreatry, Lee Barron, said:
‘People often say that somethings are right and left. Well this is not. This is about right or wrong. Too many people are being put in the appalling situation of fighting for their right to work whilst coming to terms with their terminal illness.
This campaign may take time. But the morality of the cause cannot be questioned and the Midlands TUC, along with our supporters will keep on fighting for the rights, dignity and respect that terminally ill worker deserve.”
