This May Day the annual planned union events can no longer take place, but it’s more important than ever to mark the contribution that workers make every day.
This pandemic shows just how much we rely on frontline workers. In health, in care, and in all our vital services. Sometimes their role and service have not been respected. So the TUC and all unions are calling on us all to show our appreciation for their work and sacrifice and say "thank you". Solidarity isn't affiliated or connected to the TUC but we are supporting this positive campaign from them.
Here's what you can do today
Step 1: Post a short video on social media thanking a worker who’s made a difference to you.
Step 2: Then nominate 3 of your family members or friends to also thank a worker in their own video.
Step 3:Tag them in your post and use hashtags #mayday and #ThankAWorker.
You could choose your postie, shop worker, someone in the NHS, delivery driver, food worker, or any other frontline worker.
Please spread the word now so as many people as possible can be ready to post their videos to mark the day. Encourage your friends, family members, and colleagues to take part. Save this shareable graphic to let others know what to do.
These workers are risking their lives to ensure we can be safe at home. The very least we can do is #ThankAWorker.
