USW International President Leo W. Gerard said, "Many of our sisters and brothers who live and work in the United States, Canada and the Caribbean have friends and relatives from Haiti. Our hearts and thoughts are with them during these trying moments.
It’s times like these that we are reminded that regardless of the bloodline that runs through our veins, or the address of the place we call home, we are all family connected by our common humanity."
Founded by the United Steelworkers in 1985 in Canada, the Steelworkers Humanity Fund is a registered charitable organization. Steelworker members contribute to the Fund through clauses negotiated into collective agreements. Click here for more of this story.
