One Minute Silence: tribute to key workers

April 27th, 2020

The University is inviting staff to observe a national one minute silence being held tomorrow, Tuesday 28 April at 11am in remembrance of front line workers who have lost their lives in the battle against coronavirus.

Since the start of the pandemic, at least 84 health workers including 69 NHS workers and 15 care workers have died due to the virus.

The one minute silence coincides with International Workers’ Memorial Day, an annual observance that pays tribute to workers who have become unwell, injured, disabled or have died due to their work.

It has been organised as part of a collaboration between public service trade union Unison, the Royal College of Nursing and the Royal College of Midwives.

The hashtag for the campaign to use on social media is #neverforgotten
