Unifor believes in the effectiveness of collective action—from the picket line to communities in need.
Unifor and the Social Justice Fund have already donated $220,000 to the Canadian Red Cross fire relief efforts.
National President Jerry Dias is encouraging every Unifor member and Local to show solidarity with those affected by the forest fires in British Columbia’s Interior.
There are at least three ways to help:
1. Donate online with a credit card.
Those who wish to donate by cheque should forward cheques made out to the Red Cross to:
Unifor National office
Attn: International Department, 205 Placer Court, Toronto, ON M2H 3H9
2. Spread the word.
Share the www.redcross.ca/BCFires/Unifor donation link with other Unifor members on your Facebook and Twitter account. Every donation can help to make a difference.
Organize a workplace collection, hold a bake sale, or host a lunchtime event to raise funds for BC's wildfire victims.
"My sincere thanks to the Unifor members who have already joined this urgent request. I know it means a lot to our members in the BC interior." said Dias.
