150 Second Stand Down for Recovery at 11:30 AM
May 3, 2019 @ 11:30 am
Join hundreds of employers and thousands of union members for an industry-wide stand down to raise awareness about substance abuse and recovery.
In Massachusetts, 150 out of every 100,000 construction workers die an opioid-related death. Construction workers are 6x more likely to suffer an opioid-related death than all other workers.
Join our members, sponsors, and supporters as we conduct a 150 second (2.5 minute) stand down at 11:30 AM on Friday May 3rd, 2019. We ask that everyone pause work and observe a moment of silence as we reflect about the ongoing opioid epidemic and raise awareness for those struggling with addiction or in recovery.
