Unifor calls on members to donate to BC fires relief

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 $100,000 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.

Go to www.redcross.ca/donate  [http://www.croixrouge.ca/]

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

Vancouver, BC V6B 9Z9

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.

3. Fundraise.

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's interior."  said Dias.
