CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — The West Virginia AFL-CIO is planning a Workers Memorial Day Service next week in Benwood.

Monday marks the state labor organization's 26th annual observance of Workers Memorial Day. The event set for 6 p.m. at the Benwood City Park honors 22 workers who died as a result of workplace accidents in West Virginia in 2013.

The union says it also hopes Workers Memorial Day will bring greater attention to workplace conditions and further its efforts to enact safety and health legislation.
