East Dunbartonshire Council joined trade union colleagues and Community Planning partners to mark International Workers’ Memorial Day recently.

Attendees gathered at a memorial cairn which was erected in Bishopbriggs to mark the Cadder Pit Disaster of 1913, when 22 miners tragically lost their lives. Council chief executive Gerry Cornes is pictured at the cairn with Gerry Malon, who spoke on behalf of the workers.
