Although federal statistics indicate that the number of on-the-job deaths in the nation fell 17 percent from 2008 to 2009, area union supporters believe the trend toward safer workplaces could be endangered by the current economic and political climate. The Central Maryland AFL-CIO Council observed Workers Memorial Day Thursday with a ceremony at the Carpenter's Union Hall in Hagerstown. Each year there are workplace disasters that command headlines. Among the incidents noted at the ceremony were the deaths of 28 coal miners last year in a Massey Energy Co. mine in West Virginia, the deaths of 11 oil workers when a BP rig exploded in the Gulf of Mexico and, locally, the murder of Pennsylvania Wildlife Conservation Officer David L. Grove.
