We can all agree that the COVID-19 pandemic has created many challenges. Thankfully, with the power of technology (and a few strategic photo shoots!) we are still able to do cheque “presentations” with our amazing donors and sponsors! You can barely tell that these are two separate photos merged together, right?! Pictured here is Tom Desmond (right) from PWU (Power Workers Union), presenting a cheque for $10,000 to Michelle Lamont (left) of Women’s House. We are SO grateful and appreciative of their generosity!We work with some of the most vulnerable members of our communities – women and children fleeing violence. Because we are not adequately funded by government, we rely upon community generosity to be able serve all women and children who come to us asking for help. With your support, we can continue to meet the needs of those most in need of safety, protection, and support.
Subject: Grey Bruce Labour Council wants to hear about your concerns
We know that working people and their families continue to struggle to navigate all of the various ways that COVID-19 pandemic is impacting our lives.
Working people have struggled with job loses, layoffs, workplace health and safety concerns, access to childcare and fear for parents who may be in long term care facilities.
What has been the biggest challenge for you and your family during the pandemic?
What do you think the Grey Bruce Labour Council should be doing to advocate for working families?
The Canadian Labour Congress has a campaign, “Forward Together - A Canadian Plan”, to advocate for replacing lost jobs with better ones, strengthening public health care, and disaster proofing the social safety nest. For more information, visit https://canadianplan.ca.
In Canada, we’ve weathered the pandemic by sticking together and supporting each other.
The United States is showing us what happens when we turn to blame, ignore our problems, and act like everyone is in it for themselves. We must reject that, take what we learned from the pandemic, and prepare for Canada’s future.
