Dear Sisters and Brothers,
This past week has been a difficult time for the residents of New Brunswick. With spring rains and fast melting snow, this has led to record-setting water levels, forcing residents to abandon their homes and properties as the rising waters continue.
Our thoughts are with the more than 7,000 Unifor members in New Brunswick, many of whom are affected, directly and indirectly, by the continuing rising water levels. Unifor National has donated $35,000 to the Canadian Red Cross to provide urgent assistance to families and communities impacted by the devastating floods in New Brunswick.
We are encouraging Unifor 2002 members to help by making their own donations. You can a make donation directly through a portal set up by the Canadian Red Cross www.redcross.ca/NBfloods/Unifor
In times of need, we must all come together to help one another. Stay strong Sisters and Brothers; the strength and solidarity of your Union is with you.
President of Local 2002
