The South Central Federation of Labor is forming a new fund called the Labor Relief Fund, with the intention to help union members who have been laid off or furloughed during this COVID-19 crisis.
Help will be provided for Food Security, Mortgage/Rent Assistance and educational assistance to local unions affiliated with the South Central Federation of Labor. Assistance will be limited to available money raised.
We are asking local unions and individual union members who are still working to consider making a contribution to this fund.
Checks are to be made out to “Community Labor Working Together or CLWT". Write “Labor Relief Fund” on the memo line and mail to: South Central Federation of Labor, 1602 S. Park St., #228, Madison, WI 53715.
For only $10, you can get your Union-Made (right here in Wisconsin) sign by contacting us at:
Our office is closed due to the pandemic, email us to set up a time for pick-up.
Demand Workers Be Provided with PPE
The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed a number of areas in which our nation was simply not prepared. Nowhere is this more true than in the workplace, where far too many men and women have been asked to do their jobs without the personal protective equipment they need to keep themselves and those around them safe.
Personal Protective Equipment is every worker’s right.
Visit unionmaskbrigade.org to download our safety decree demanding that appropriate personal protective equipment be provided to everyone whose work requires it. Print and display in your workplace.
