The Milwaukee Area Labor Council announced the formation of 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 in two areas: Food Security and Mortgage/Rent Assistance to local unions affiliated with the Milwaukee Area Labor Council. Assistance will be limited to available money raised.
THANK YOU to all the local unions, activists, community members, Union Plus, and the National AFL-CIO for your generous donations and commitment to standing with union members!
A member of our staff may be in contact for more information and we will follow up with a determination and next steps. Please share the application link with other union members.
We are continuing to ask 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 “Labor Community @ Work,” a 501c3 organization affiliated with MALC. Write “Labor Relief Fund” on the memo line and mail to: Milwaukee Area Labor Council. 633 S Hawley Rd., Suite 110, Milwaukee, WI 53214.
OR you can donate online! https://actionnetwork.org/fundraising/labor-relief-fund
All donations will go directly to helping other union members. Anyone receiving help must be a member in good standing, as defined by their local union.
