The workers will march to the Legislative Assembly to call on the three major parties to commit to improve safety in the construction industry.
The march coincides with the closure of submissions to the ACT government inquiry into safety in the construction industry and a ceremony to start the beginning of work for a national workers' memorial.
CFMEU ACT Secretary Dean Hall said the leaders of the three major parties contesting next month's territory election have been asked to address the rally.
''Construction workers are scared they will be next to die or be seriously injured,'' Mr Hall said.
''Enough is enough, safety needs to be prioritised and improved, as there is no acceptable number of deaths. We really hope that this current inquiry results in improvements in safety in the industry and is not a bureaucratic process where the recommendations are lost in paperwork and government procedures.''
