April marked International Day of Mourning, a time to reflect on the tragic and avoidable deaths of people at work and acknowledge the ongoing fight by the trade union movement to improve safety in the workplace. This International Day of Mourning, I acknowledge five food delivery workers who died at work in a two month period at the end of last year. Mr Dede Fredy, aged 36, was hit by a car and killed at Sydenham Road in Marrickville in my electorate while delivering food late last year. Tragically, Mr Fredy leaves behind a wife and young son. His classification as an independent contractor denies his family any compensation. According to the Transport Workers Union, 73 per cent of food delivery workers are worried about being seriously injured or killed at work and SafeWork NSW noted there were 74 "serious notifiable injuries" to food delivery riders working on NSW roads last year. Everyone deserves to come home from work. Thank you to Unions NSW and the trade union movement for your ongoing fight to strengthen our industrial relations laws to ensure that every worker returns home to their family.
