We are a union that believes in collective action—from the picket line to communities in need. I’m writing you today to encourage every Unifor member and Local to show solidarity with those affected by the forest fires in British Columbia’s Interior.
Unifor and the Social Justice Fund have already donated $100,000 to the Canadian Red Cross fire relief efforts.
Here are three things you can do to help:
1.Donate online with a credit card.
Go to: www.redcross.ca/donate.
Need to donate via cheque?
Please make your cheque payable to Canadian Red Cross and mail to:
Canadian Red Cross
British Columbia/Yukon Office
PO Box 4664 STN Terminal
2.Spread the word.
Share the www.redcross.ca/donate 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.
Thank you for joining in this urgent request and for demonstrating what collective action and caring can accomplish.
Jerry Dias – Unifor National President
