The Mining and Energy Union Northern Mining & NSW Energy District will hold its 26th Annual Memorial Day Service to pay respects to lives lost to coal mining this Sunday 10 September.
The service is held as an acknowledgement to the almost 1,800 men, women and boys who have lost their lives in the Northern District Coalfields.
This year’s service follows on from the Centenary of the Bellbird disaster on 1 September. The 21 victims of the Bellbird disaster are acknowledged on the Jim Comerford Memorial Wall.
MEU Northern Mining & NSW Energy District President Robin Williams said Memorial Day is an opportunity for unionists, mineworkers, bereaved families and all members of the community to come together and reflect on the important role mining plays in the District and the enormous cost paid over many years in workers’ death and injury.
