Steelworkers Humanity Fund Contributes $50,000 to Quebec and Manitoba Flood Relief

TORONTO, May 12 /CNW/ - "I am pleased to announce the Steelworkers Humanity Fund is contributing $50,000 toward emergency relief efforts for communities affected by historic levels of flooding in St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec and in southern Manitoba", Ken Neumann, United Steelworkers National Director for Canada, said today. "

This donation, made possible by the generous contributions of thousands of individual Steelworkers, means that residents in flood-ravaged communities in Quebec and Manitoba will have additional help to recover from flooding," Neumann said.

Founded in 1985, the Steelworkers Humanity Fund is a registered charitable organization focusing primarily on development projects and emergency aid in developing countries. The Fund also supports Canadian communities in crisis.

Steelworkers members contribute to the Humanity Fund through clauses negotiated into collective agreements. In some cases matching contributions come from employers.
